ok ok, I got it now, no need to repeat it three times. From the book I
got the expression that WebDav access could be used as some sort of a
svn client repacement for users that only need to do some
documentation on our project, without teaching them about version
control. I believed that the WebDav way into the repository was just
another access method into the repository without bypassing all these
nice features clients have.

Thanks for clarification. It means that I need to be quite careful
when allowing autoversioning in my repository.

But the repository hooks are called, aren't they?

Let me ask this question in a different way:
When you have a ASCII text file in your repository with svn:eol-style
native, the file is stored internally with LF line endings, right?
When a user modifies this file using WebDav and manages to put CRLF
line endings into that file, would a svn client hickup and fail on the
next checkout, or would the file get the correct line endings on the
next svn update/commit cycle?
