You may want to read about STARTS, which is a Stanford proposal for a
standard Internet query language.  The STARTS work predates WebDAV and thus
does not use the terminology of WebDAV, nor XML, but has some points of
resemblance.  Like DASL it defines a server-indepedent syntax for query and
results.  Unlike DASL it also addresses issues of resource discovery
(choosing those sources most likely to be able to answer a query) and query
merging (gathering statistics from diverse servers to enable a program to
merge ranked results), and also unlike DASL it defines only a single query
language, where DASL proper is more like a transport for multiple query
languages.
