In the bindings draft the status code 506 is introduced as a
possible response for the PROPFIND method. Is it allowed to
use the status code for other methods as well?

The use-case is a server which doesn't allow the creation of
loops. When an operation would create a loop the status code
could be used to report it. When a server supports bindings
a sequence of MOVE methods could create a loop for example.
