I dislike the fact, that a simple task like creating a new resource
should constitute complicated metadata creating/parsing.

I think a simple method (I would choose another one, not the POST
one, but e.g. "CREATE") would be more suitable to the HTTP model.

Please, note, not everything on the earth "is WebDAV" and it seems
to mee that forcing using XML everywhere, even if it is not necessary
is simply an error (it leads to too complicated protocols and too
much overhead for implementing them...)
