One of the areas that I saw where webDAV was different was version 
control and locking support for collaborative document editing.

One of the use cases I wanted to see WebDAV used for was:
 > An intranet use, where a user can save documents to the GL Filemgmt 
plugin (or other FM plugin) and open it later in WORD as an example. A 
user can then edit it and just use the save to update the document in 
the filemgmt plugin. No need to upload and or replace the file using a 
clunky webform ui.

How would Atom be used to upload a file?  - what would the client be?
Can Atom get around the POST limit of uploading files or make that 
process of uploading large files better as in provide better progress
