      I just don't think that it is a WebDAV specific problem, so I would
      expect WebDAV to use whatever status would be appropriate for any
      other HTTP application.

      I tend to favour 400, but it looks as if 422 was invented for WebDAV
      because it was decided that 400 couldn't be used to report errors that
      weren't strictly syntactic?
