DAV won't work for zope.org because it runs behind apache and 
we've never done the incantation apache requires to let 
cgi-ish processes handle their own DAV requests.

As far as disabling DAV support, there's no real way to do that
(except for running behind apache or another server that interferes
with DAV requests by default). This really shouldn't be a problem - 
the extended HTTP methods that provide DAV support all basically 
have Zope api corollaries, so the DAV methods are protected by the 
analogous permissions. For example:

PROPFIND  -> manage properties
PROPPATCH -> manage properties
DELETE    -> delete objects
MKCOL     -> Add folders

...and so on. GET, POST and PUT are used by DAV exactly as in 
the HTTP spec, so if you can "download" something via DAV then 
you could also have gotten it with your normal non-DAV aware 

Hope this helps!
