Proposed wording to clarify that POST behavior in GSHP is only for RDF graph content

So, per our conversation in today's teleconference regarding the graph store protocol, below is suggested text that would go into section 5.5 (HTTP Post) of the editor's draft immediately after the second pair of HTTP message and SPARQL Update examples for the POST = append scenario and right before the paragraph beginning "As mentioned earlier..":

"Note that this behavior is only sanctioned for HTTP POST requests where the request URI identifies RDF graph content. Implementations of this protocol can interpret HTTP POST requests to other kinds of information resources in a manner that still provides a uniform method to cover the functions indicated in [RFC2616] (section 9.5 POST) but that is more appropriate for the kind of resource being targeted"

In addition, we also tentatively agreed to change the first sentence in that section from "A request that uses the HTTP POST method SHOULD [..]" to "A request that uses the HTTP POST method MUST [..]"
