QOTD: Fielding on Form(s)

Roy Fielding on why HTML4 forms only support GET and POST:

The only reason the HTML4 spec has only two options available
in that field is *because* of the browser bugs. W3C specs have
no spine.

In an earlier message in the thread he urged folk to help fix the browsers.
Never occured to me to check until now, but XForms supports GET/PUT/POST. But not DELETE oddly.
