A programmer needs to set the HTTP method in the code. They
type something like

    x.setHttpRequestMethod ("XXXX");

Now, whether they type the four characters P-O-S-T or
the four characters M-G-E-T exactly where is URIQA forcing
them to "add" anything to the methodology/architecture
being employed?!

In either case, they have to type explicit characters in
their code to express what they want the server to do.

There is nothing here being "added" to the architecture.

Not *extra* code. Just *different* code.

That's a non-trivial distinction.

Extra code means more work than otherwise. Different
code means the same amount of effort, just different.
