Here's the hack we use locally to mitigate this: allow OPTIONS and PROPFIND at the repository root for all authenticated users. It broadly seems to do the trick and for most operations just OPTIONS will do.

I meant to work out if this was sufficient and not too dangerous sometime before passing the patch on - I haven't done this, and sounds like it this isn't even remotely correct, so I'm not really proposing this as a patch. But here goes anyway in case it's useful.
