Not only are people capable of reading a web page, but Chandler also can
(and should) be capable of parsing HTML it receives when subscribing and
determining what the DAV link it needs is (if it's even using DAV).  So
using a URL that returns a human readable page needn't add any steps to
a Chandler user's workflow.

Sincerely,
Jeffrey
