           Summary: "mandatory" properties
           Product: WebDAV-RFC 2518-bis
           Version: -06
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: 14.  DAV Properties
        AssignedTo: joe-bugzilla@cursive.net
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@greenbytes.de
                CC: w3c-dist-auth@w3.org

This is actually an old issue. For instance:

    Description: The creationdate property should be defined on all DAV
             compliant resources.  If present, it contains a timestamp
             of the moment when the resource was created (i.e., the
             moment it had non-null state).

Basically this says that the property should be there, unless it isn't. 
Just say that it's optional in these cases. 

(The current language is known to have caused incorrect implementations that
(client-side) assume that the property will always be present or (server-side)
return the value as found with either empty or "best-guess" value).
