Yes, you are right. If I want to compare the value of two properties of two

Now, consider we want to compare a value of especial property of a resource in
a collection with the value of the same property(or something else) of
resources in other collections. In this case you should use many propfind
method to compare value of our given

However, if we were allowed to have more than a collection in DAV:from , we
would able to handle it in one request.

Unfortunately, still I don't know wether we are allowed to use of more than

Any pointer is appriciated.
