Yes, adding Webdav methods  to the cocoon makes sense. However
it would duplicate the work done for the slide webdav servlet.
Slide webdav contains lot of code, so porting it to cocoon is a
major project.

Do you want to extend the matcher or introduce a new one? You could do either

<map:match type="wildcard" method="PROPFIND" pattern="**./ >


<map:match type="wildcard"  pattern="**./ >
  <map:select type="webdav">  
	<map:when test="PROPFIND">
      <map:when test="PUT">

I would prefer the second solution, since you don't have to change 
existing matchers.
