I'd rather see us test whether the author field is minimal or not. If
it looks like <D:author>blah</D:author>, it would be nice to unpackage
it regardless of whether the client is a generic DAV client. My theory
is that most DAV clients will send a minimal author spec, and it would
be nice not to display their lock fields as junk to non-dav clients.

On another note, if the author field is using namespace tags which were
defined elsewhere, how can we be sure those namespace tags are defined
the same way in the response? How does the DAV spec address this
problem?
