The content-disposition header is defined in RFC6266:

    The Content-Disposition response header field is used to convey
    additional information about how to process the response payload, and
    also can be used to attach additional metadata, such as the filename
    to use when saving the response payload locally.

of this header in HTTP *requests* although it seems like a natural fit 
in operations like WebDAV PUT (or AtomPUB POST). Is this an oversight ?

header in requests already (see
