Hi Stuart
The judgement is partially correct :) If it was 'a mechanism that
relied solely on the semantics of the HTTP POST operation such that any
transport protocol would be forced to implement HTTP POST functionality'
then it would be ruled out by this requirement. I think that is clearer,
basically we keep the transport protocol features out of the model.
