by saying "a webdav server exists in that universe" it is not solved for trac :)

if you press "attach a document" there is no webdav folder which opens but a webform. and there is no way of editing attached documents via a button. and i do not know a way how to put a link into trac wiki, so the attachments folder opens as webdav folder, and i can click on it and edit the document.

Web browsers do not support the webdav protocol, and Trac is a web application.

I don't understand your point: if you want to have access to a file using the webdav protocol, you need a webdav client. A web browser is not a webdav client.

I can't see what Trac could bring there to change the situation (although re-implementing webdav through JavaScript, which is far away from Trac goals)

You could share the Trac attachment folder using the webdav feature of Apache, but this would mean bypassing Trac DB, which would end up into an out-of-sync situation.

I think that the real issue here is that the attachments are not meant as a document management system. If the documents you're attaching are edited sufficiently frequently that WebDAV seems necessary you should look at SVN's "auto versioning" feature as mentioned in the Trac-Hacks ticket above. You can use your repository to store and version the files and access them via WebDAV. The files can be linked from the Wiki using source: TracLinks.
