OK, my point being: I am not aware of any convention dictating this, and
in my implementation of a WebDAV server I simply don't do it. So there
are use cases where it's irrelevant and just fine to accept the URI even
though it identifies a collection.
(which ironically says that it's a convention to accept the URI, but to
return a "Content-Location" response header with the "/" appended.
