What irks me is that we've got one or two folks who want to see 
something implemented for what seems like purely academic reasons, and 
they don't care to contribute beyond offering their opinions.  They 
aren't convincing with why their ideas are better than what code has 
already been produced, and they aren't coding anything on their own that 
they are willing to offer to the community.  You're right - I shouldn't 
be giving this discussion the time of day.

It's nice when we can apply the standards practically.

I find little practical use for the proposed sweeping changes to POST 
actions, since the only gain we would make is tenuous standards support, 
which according to the excerpts you provided, we already achieve.
