I think that over the past N months, we've discussed ideas like this
as a post-1.0 feature. Maybe you can file a "feature request" issue?
I think there are many, many things that would be nice to store in the
repository, and have them transmitted down to the client as 'default'

It's a lot of work, though -- hence the post-1.0 designation.

That's already planned for post-1.0.

So is this. See issue #786. My dream is that someone will do it
*before* 1.0, but it probably won't happen.

The problem is that Windows only implements the DA part of DAV. It
doesn't know about V. But there are ways of implementing backward
compatibility... :-)
