http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_dav_module.html includes an
example configuration that includes "limit_except GET {".

Would something like that work for you?

Require authorization for any method other than GET -- GET is probably
read-only, and anything else is possibly read-write.

(You may need to investigate whether OPTIONS needs to be allowed in the
same way as GET.)
