So I changed 5.4.2 to:

5.4.2.  Scope

    A Scope can be an arbitrary URI reference.

    Servers, of course, may support only particular scopes.  This may
    include limitations for particular schemes such as "http:" or "ftp:"
    or certain URI namespaces.  However, WebDAV compliant search arbiters
    minimally SHOULD support scopes that match their own URI.

and added:

B.8.  Search Scope Discovery

    Given a Search Arbiter resource, there's currently no way to discover
    programmatically the supported sets of search scopes.  Future
    revisions of this specification could specify a scope discovery
    mechanism, similar to the Query Schema Discovery defined in
    Section 4.
