      I agree with Roy about POST lacking visibility, but agree with your
      point that this is no reason to throw the "REST" of the style to the
      breeze when using POST.

      My takeaway from Roy's post is that the style transcends the limitations
      of HTTP, so method choice when pragmatism mandates POST is less
      interesting than how the system works. IOW, I don't see much daylight
      between your position and Roy's.
