Indeed, but that's a problem with the old text as well.

Let's do a minimal fix, so that we can treat issue #238 as separate 
problem...:

"If the required action involves a subsequent HTTP request, it MAY be 
carried out by the user agent without interaction with the user if and 
only if the method used in the second request is known to be "safe", as 
defined in Section 6.1.1."

Best regards, Julian
