I think that we also discussed PUT during the F2F, and that PUT would entirely 
replace the graph it is PUT to. Should PUT and POST do different things?

LOAD, should, as far as I have understood, add triples to the graph, so the 
main difference between using LOAD and HTTP PUT is that LOAD is additive and 
that HTTP PUT is used to send data on the client, whereas LOAD needs a remote 

So, perhaps POST should add triples to the graph it posts to, to cover all 
these cases?
