Does anybody have any new information / thoughts about this?

My personal take: it seems like the most expedient thing to do would  
be to go through each method defined by 2616 and explicitly state  
whether it allows a body or not, so as to remove the ambiguity. Also,  
it would be good to recommend that new method definitions (perhaps in  
an IANA registry?) also include this information.

Straw-man list:
GET - no
PUT - yes
DELETE - no
POST - yes
TRACE - yes
OPTIONS - yes
CONNECT - n/a

Cheers,
