Yes, metadata "properties" are part of the WebDAV/DeltaV protocol.
You use the PROPFIND http method to discover metadata attached to
resources.

For example, using the Cadaver commandline client
(http://www.webdav.org/cadaver/), you can browse the svn repository
much like an ftp client. It has property commands for listing and
fetching property values.
