proposal for issue 6533 (Transfer: Safeness of operations)

All,
The proposal is as follows,
1/ add a paragraph to explain what 'safe' and 'idempotent' means, and the 
impact on operations (like being able to redo a request when there is a 
failure at the underlying protocol level, or using a timeout when that 
information is not available, like UDP packets).

The text might reference http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-9.1
directly or even
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-method-registrations-01
or we can come up with our own definitions if needed (that is the main 
point of discussion I guess).

2/ for each resource operation, add a small table with the 
safeness and idempotent properties (and this table would also act as a 
short summary for each paragrahp, so include the values of 
/s:Envelope/s:Header/wsa:Action, for example).
