basicsearch is a basic search. Everyone has to implement 
basicsearch. We want the cost of entry to be low. I suggest
using the approach of "If the protocol is useful without it,
leave it out of the first draft."

Agreed.

That's why I was wondering whether we need a facility to query the HREF
(which basicsearch currently doesn't have).

That should be irrelevant. Whether text is returned in a text node or in a
CDATA section doesn't change the XML Infoset.

BTW: why is Slide doing this? To avoid proper XML escaping? Bad idea,
because this way a displayname may not contain the string "]]>".

I agree with the structure, but I don't see why we would want to specify an
encoding. The encoding must be UTF-8 anyway, otherwise there wouldn't be any
interoperability in WebDAV.

The other issue is that the format of the HREFs may be different across
servers (protocol and authority may be missing, possibly trailing
slashes...).
