Hi there,

below the requested change proposal. It *is* brief, because all it asks 
for is changing the name of a single term.

Best regards, Julian

-- snip --


SUMMARY

The description of the form submission method ([1]) uses the term 
"mutate action" for the description of building a new URI from the form 
parameters for the purpose of a subsequent GET request.

This is confusing as nothing except the URI actually is mutated; in 
particular not server state.

RATIONALE

See above.

DETAILS

Simply change the term "mutate action" to "mutate action URL" (see [2]) 
so it is clearer what is being mutated.

IMPACT

1. Positive Effects

More clarity.

2. Negative Effects

None.

3. Conformance Classes Changes

None.

4. Risks

None.
