I believe all of these conversions when done using normal subversion
interaction would be done by the subversion client (not so sure about
the first one, but the second and third ones I'm fairly sure about). So
when you use WebDAV you're replacing the svn client, with another client
that doesn't know about keyword expansion or svn: properties, so none of
this takes place.
