I think that would be worthwhile, but need not muddy these discussions.

Short answer: out of scope.

Long answer: this requires a common understanding of what multivalued
properties are, and how they are serialized.

A proposal was contained in a draft of what later was published as RFC
4316, see
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-reschke-webdav-property-datatype
s-06.html#rfc.section.A>. 
Back when we discussed this, there was a preference of keeping things
simple, and so it was removed from subsequent drafts.

That being said, I know that the proposal was implemented both by SAP
and Xythos (although likely in different namespaces). I would be happy
to resurrect that part of the spec as a separate activity, but today I
wouldn't be able to update the SAP implementation anymore.

BR, Julian
