You don't give any reasons for not liking WebDAV, so it seems
like NIH. ("I don't like it because I didn't invent it.")

http://davenet.userland.com/2000/03/02/theTwowayweb

doesn't explain what you want to be "two-way".

The conventional way people support two-way in web applications is
using forms (with file upload).

WebDAV was intended to solve a larger set of problems with
protocol and not UI-based content management, and it seems to
do that.
