To enable a 1-to-1 correspondence between SVN properties and DAV properties.
DAV props are named with a URI, so if we use a URI then there doesn't have
to be a DAV <-> SVN mapping of prop names.

The URI mechanism also prevents two tools from both using a property called
"name" and getting confused.
