why */* in inputSerialization of POST binding?

Dan,

You seemed clear during Tues telcon that if I changed the  
inputSerialization of the POST binding at all, I should add the */*  
type specifier to application/x-www-form-urlencoded instead of what I  
would have expected to add, namely, application/xml.

I expected to add application/xml because the only other way to spell  
SPARQL queries, formally or informally, is through XML serialization  
of the abstract syntax. That's the only other way anyone's talked  
about, as I recall.

I'm confused about the use of */* here, and as a result, I'm not  
going to add anything till I'm less confused. :>

Cheers,
Kendall
