Uhh, what does the widespread use of cookies, POST-triggered CGI scripts
whose result is not "on the web", and application servers that maintain
server-side application state in order to make HTTP useful to application
integration by ordinary mortals say about a well-known theory of the Web
architectural principles if one were to apply those criteria? </troll>

I'm quite confident that this group is operating well within its chartered
constraints vis a vis the Web architetcture, the current draft of the
Webarch document, and the understandings that resulted from the discussions
between the TAG and XMLP on SOAP 1.2 and the GET binding a year ago.
