I understand.  My suggestion was to remove those words to avoid the
implication that a server that did an "intelligent copy" (whatever
that may mean to it) is not DAV-compliant.  Move does have the
same problem as you point out.  I didn't notice any words in the
description of Move that would restrict an implementation's options
with respect to modifying the resource in arbitrary ways as a
side-effect of the Move.
