Good point. After all the idea *is* to reimplement it on top, because  
the endpoint could aggregate common payloads in set operations.

But then the server always has the option to reject the BATCH with  
501, which would then make the client fallback.
Well, and a servlet which does WebDAV, needs to do most of the HTTP  
stack itself anyways ;-)
