The proposed revision to POST removes language I considered confusing at
best when 2626 was written. I had to twist my brain sideways to
rationalize subordinate with reality. Since 'subordinate' made no
practical contribution to interoperabilty, the revisions don't relax the
definition of POST.

In the end, an application which uses POST (or PUT) isn't created in a one
sided vacumn. The server processing component and the HTML/XML/JS, etc.
which interacts as a client are created by the 'same' entity in
coordination with each other. Data submitted to a process is subordinate
to the will of that process. Dah!
