      Those two things aren't inconsistent. WebDAV is both a protocol and
      an HTTP extension. SOAP can be used in the same way. Indeed, this is
      the only practical way in which SOAP can be used in a REST friendly
      manner (the other way being to recast REST semantics on top of SOAP -
      a horrible, horrible idea).
