The working group decided that abusing OPTIONS for this is the wrong 
thing to do, and all information should be made properties instead (this 
  will save one round trip if you need both these and other properties).

The RCF3253 issues list should have a related entry, pointing out that 
rfc3253bis should make these live properties as well. Unfortunately, 
www.webdav.org is down right now (again).
