I was just reviewing the XForms specification when I noticed that
the submission method does not include "DELETE" as an option.

I could, of course, be reading the specification incorrecly and 
DELETE could be allowed.

On the off chance that I am not reading it incorrecyly I would like
to strongly encourage it's addition. I am currently implementing
web services and trying to adhere to a RESTian architecture. The
current status of that experiment can be viewed here:

In particular the specification for the RESTLog interface:
http://wellformedweb.org/news/5

You will notice that as of right now the 'client' for this 
interface has to be a custom piece of software, but that
any XForms enabled browser would handle this interface
just fine. That is, of course, with the exception 
of deleting an item which requires the 'DELETE' verb.


	Thanks,
