For the record, the HTTPbis WG discussed the issue of GET/HEAD with 
request bodies a few months ago, and the resolution was that in general 
they are allowed unless explicitly forbidden (which is not the case for 
GET or HEAD).

See <http://www3.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/19> and 
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-p1-messaging-02>.
