Its not really WebDAV specific in any way, it could be used for  
arbitrary HTTP based protocols.

The problem with XML is that HTTP content is quite often binary :-)  
Makes sense for properties (eg inside a batch), but IMHO not for HTTP  
resource contents.

BATCH would be a simple concat of the requests/responses as if they  
where issued separately. (but giving the server the chance to group  
them for more efficient processing).
