Ah, what I meant was, if we discourage them from using colons, then
*if they take our advice*, they'll experience pain. Right now they're
not experiencing, pain. But that's because they get to use colons.

Agreed.

I think your custom-report solution also lessens the urgency of #1971,
because there aren't any important compatibility stages. We can add
the feature to client and server simultaneously, and each would retain
the ability to work the old way when faced with an older interlocutor.

The only thing with compatibility implications is for the server to
stop sending DAV-incompatible props over DAV. But as there's no
corresponding client change to that, it's simply a one-time thing that
we do at 2.0 (but not before, of course, because it would break 1.x
client compatibility).

Sanity check: does the above make sense?
