as a matter of fact, "DAV:" isn't a URI at all (as RFC2396 doesn't allow 
empty scheme-specific parts). Only RFC2396bis will actually make "DAV:" 
a legal URI.

You're proposed change however is inaccurate -- the specification itself 
  uses a single namespace, and that namespace has the name "DAV:". So I 
think there's really nothing that needs to change.
