I'm not sure what the intended use of `url-handler-mode' is, or how to
get the `url-dav' thing to work -- but it seems that the only thing
that stands in my way of loading a URL in Emacs is these two functions
from "url-handlers.el": `url-file-name-completion' and
`url-file-name-all-completions', both just throw an "Unimplemented"

I have redefined them with trivial versions:

  (defun url-file-name-completion (_url _directory &optional _predicate) t)
  (defun url-file-name-all-completions (file _directory) (list file))

and with that I can now load remote files via HTTP.  This is obviously
limited in a way that makes a proper DAV client (with a matching
server) better, but I suspect that for most people this is irrelevant,
and I don't see any explanation why the error-throwing is needed.  (It
seems that the url-dav thing has its own functions anyway.)

(I'm leaving the following information because of all those things
that I'm not sure about, as I said in the beginning.)

Thanks. By experiment, this was present in 24.3 but fixed in 24.4.
