Can we revisit the decision to remove the PUT and DELETE verbs from HTML5.

The original rationale for removing it was a lack of use-cases[1], but that
ticket has since grown a number of use-cases. In particular, my work with
Rails, which involves us faking PUT and DELETE forms[2], is a good example
of a large number of people wanting this feature and having to apply hacks
to get it.
