looking into this a bit, it was added in commit

the "IsReadOnly" property is added here in Content::getResourceType:


but the ContentProperties::UCBNamesToDAVNames function does not contain
a mapping to a DAV property name, in contrast to the other properties

if not then maybe it was simply added there in error...
