Well, if you view the HTTP API as;

interface Resource
  Entity GET( Headers )
  Entity PUT( Headers, Entity )
  Entity POST( Headers, Entity )

Then I guess that the headers and the entity would be considered
parameters.  Some headers are standardized too, of course.  Is that
what you had in mind?
