No, Dreamweaver cannot do without file extensions. WebDAV does carry the
content-type, but Dreamweaver (like all windows WebDAV clients) ignores

WebDAV retrieves files using a normal HTTP GET. So you get the rendered
version everyone sees. WebDAV does know a 'source link' property, which in
Zope correctly points to the unrendered DTML source, but I have yet to see
a client that actually makes use of this.

Zope 2.3a1 let's you start an extra server on a different port that only
serves source, especially for WebDAV clients.

I'd say, file feature requests with Macromedia :)

Note that the Macromedia WebDAV implementation has some serious bugs, see
elsewhere on this list. The good news is that I just received word from
Macromedia that they are testing an update to Dreamweaver that fixes these
issues. It should be available on Macromedia Exchange soon.
