You might want to take a look at the WebDAV-related DASL "Distributed
Searching And Locating" working group page at

>From their charter:
Working Group Scope 
A generalized search mechanism is a broad problem space. It encompasses a
variety of object models, typing schemes, and media. By focusing on a subset
of this space, the problem of locating resources based on property values
and text content, the working group will leverage much of the existing work
that has been done on querying under simple property and resource models. 
In-Scope items include: - typing - comparisons (>, >=, <, <=, !=, ==) -
internationalized content - text content matching - dealing with arbitrary
XML values 
Out-of-scope items include: - definitions of well-known properties -
server-to-server communication protocols - cross-language comparisons -
searching for non-text content (images, video, audio, etc.) - client control
of server administration (e.g. indexing)
