do you mean if it's in general possible or are you asking about
the webdav-server present in jackrabbit?

since webdav is only an extension to http i don't see a
reason why it shouldn't be allowed.
there is one thing you have to make sure: a couple of webdav responses
include DAV:href properties. you have to make sure, that those are 
consistent with the original request.
in the jackrabbit-server this would mean you have to make sure, that
the DavResourceLocatorFactory, DavResource.getHref(),
DavResource.getLocator() work properly.

hope this answers your question
