That may be fine for geeks but try and see if Betty Boop in accounting 
that wants to update a document maintained on the Intranet file 
repository (Geeklog) would have any idea what that means. A user just 
wants to open the file in the default application (have it lock the file 
automatically) and save it - updating the remote file automatically. MS 
Office and other apps automatically support WebDAV and it's a protocol 
thats gaining in popularity after 10years+.
