For lock/unlock I do have a LockManager in mind which should make it 
possible to handle locking not only at filesystem level but also e.g. 
in-process to have locking for ftp et al too.

At the deepest level we need these functions in the fileobject. But 
maybe we should not expose them to the user - instead it could be 
handled automatically by some sort of TransactionManager where one could 
call commit()/rollback()?

Sounds reasonable to me, though I am not a webdav specialist.

Lets wait a night, maybe someone other would like talk to this too.
