RFC 4918 defines it as a header field that applies to any method (same 
as all RFC 2616 conditional header fields).

That being said, as ETags and timestamps do not necessarily change on 
WebDAV property changes, using it with PROPFIND may be tricky. And, as 
you have seen, support is likely to be spotty.
