The client has no knowledge of the master - the slave a completely
transparent proxy. The only way to distinguish between a PROPFIND for
an update or a commit is to have the client give some indication about
what it's intending. By using an HTTP header, the slave can check
header and then proxy that PROPFIND to the master. (This will likely
make all PROPFIND's on a commit hit the server, but, eh, so be it.)
