This is a problem with the WebDAV spec, not XML.

I have never seen a reasonable way in WebDAV to even specify the legal values 
for properties (schemas) so extended properties are suspect at best.

A lot of the issues here are abuse of the existing infrastructure. A good 
analogy is in the good old days of "finger". A lot of people, self included, 
abused finger so that we could transfer data through firewalls (and create 
awesome animated ASCII movies). We had to work within the bound of the 
system, and yes, it was inefficient, and kludgy. 

Don't blame the system for your abuses is my recommendation.... and if you 
really can't stomach it, *do something else*.
