--- Comment #4 from Christopher Schultz <> ---
I've looked at the RFC and it's not great. It basically says "you must repeat
the HTTP response code in the 'status' field", everything else is optional, and
any endpoint can make-up its own URIs for the "error type".

So the "status" doesn't add anything, and every other field has no meaning
unless the client and server agree on the URIs for the "type".

If WebDAV has defined specific "type" URIs then I think this is a plausible
feature for implementation. Until then, it's just individual developers making
stuff up in the hopes that clients choose that particular implementation.

Building against non-standards gets everyone into trouble.
