I wasn't clear, so yah... there's a bit of misunderstanding. No need to
apologize... I wasn't offended and I can be blamed for not being clear.

I find the *rationale* for why DAV uses URIs to apply to SVN, too. So... you
could say there is a rationale R. R applies to SVN, and it happens to apply
to DAV. But that doesn't create any causal effects between SVN and DAV.
