Well, there's no interoperability at all for DAV:displayname. Some 
servers default it to the unecaped form of the last path segment (IIS, 
Slide, Tomcat), while others just treat it as a dead property that *can* 
hold a description (Apache/mod_dav, SAP). So using DAV:displayname to 
filter or sort by last path segment simply won't work.
