Hum, indeed this header is present in the WebDAV I set up for myself.
Another issue, when you use password protected zone is the fact that one 
component may send username\machine as the username. There is a "lenient" 
flag in the AclRealm in the AclFilter to cope with that.

For the MS-Author-Via: DAV header, the best way is to add on the DAVFrame 
of the root document a HeaderFilter
with "header-name" -> MS-Author-Via
and with "header-value" -> DAV
all other option unticked.
