I would be willing to change the 405 to a 403, with the proviso that a DAV:error element MUST also be returned and that MUST contain a DAV:supports-parent-depth-infinity-sync element. That way clients can clear distinguish between this case and other types of 403.

I agree.

What is the rationale behind sending it only once?
