Search the searchable list archiv.
You will find some article about this issue.

I assume, because preferences of Python, Zope's implementation
language, have had a higher priority than Windows preferences ;-)
Python does not like periods in names.

I do not think, the two version will differ in WebDAV support
(though someone is working on locking through WebDAV).
However, if I would start a new project, I would go for
2.2.4 (I expect less bugs than 2.2.2).

You can do that.

But you will lose information. Objects in Zope not only have
content, but properties, security attributes, ownership,
modification times ....
All these will not be extractable by WebDAV.

I would go for the backup of the complete proprietary database.
At least as the primary backup. As an additional safety
belt, I might think about backing up the content independently.
