Let's take a look... "{safety} A boolean indicating whether the
operation is asserted to be safe (as defined in Section 3.5 of [Web
Architecture]) for users of the described service to invoke. If this
property is false or is not set, then no assertion has been made about
the safety of the operation, thus the operation MAY or MAY NOT be safe.
However, an operation SHOULD be marked safe if it meets the criteria for
a safe interaction defined in Section 3.5 of [Web Architecture]. The
default value of this property is false."

Yes, that's exactly what I was looking for. Nifty!

I look forward to hearing about support in tools and such.
