They don't. They store

   <D:author ...a possible random list of xml namespaces and tag
attributes>
     opaque cdata
   </D:author>

So it's not safe to blindly strip away <D:author>. Furthermore,
mod_dav has an obligation to preserve the entire XML block... not just
the cdata, but the attributes on <D:author>.
