Form submission of CSS

I have a question about the public validator site. Is there a reason the 
form submission uses the POST method rather than GET? I see that it only 
accepts GET (changing the form in my local chahe to use PUT fails). Is 
there a technical reason?

The reason I ask is that sometimes it's easier to just paste the contents 
of a CSS file into the textarea and click send. I sent one yesterday that 
had such a long URI that it overflowed the buffer in our local proxy and 
when I shortened it some the jigsaw server returned a message saying the 
URI was too long.

Thanks for any insight,
