sorry for responding so late, but I was busy with other stuff.

WebDav provides CRUD operations and some limited search capabilities and
was mainly intended to facilitate collaboration between users in editing
and managing documents. However, I think CMIS opens a whole new range of
possibilities for working with documents. For example I might think of
having some sort of "smart documents" that can participate in a
work-flow or maybe let the user perform a full text search on a
federated content repository or use the type that CMIS associates with
objects/document for executing some more complex tasks that go beyond
"edit / create new documents". I can imagine that some custom
LibreOffice extensions for specific applications, would benefit from a
CMIS content provider.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
