That's overstating the situation, since WebDAV is an extension to HTTP: "HTTP Extensions for Distributed Authoring -- WEBDAV", http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2518.txt

A WebDAV client shouldn't omit the HTTP/1.1 "Host:" header because it's a WebDAV client and not an HTTP client. And it shouldn't ignore the Set-Cookie header because it's a WebDAV client and not an HTTP client. Certainly, there may be other reasons to not accept cookies, but "oh, it's WebDAV, not HTTP" isn't one of them.
