Just a namespace wouldn't do it. We'd do something like:

  <D:owner S:svn-client="yes">...</D:owner>

Where D: corresponds to DAV:, and S: is the standard SVN namespace.

Nope. If some other client sent a "plain text" cdata *and* a custom
attribute on DAV:owner, then you wouldn't remember to put that
attribute back when you built a DAV:owner element in a response.
