Hi Mark, Paul,

The issue did get disscussed again on Wednesday's telcon (2/20) as part of
the review of action items. I drew attention to the concern with the WG
closing the issue raised by Paul Prescod, [1] and sequel. However, on the
basis that the nature of Web Architecture is a topic of continuing debate
within the TAG and elsewhere; and noting that the TAG has actioned further
liason between W3C and IETF [2,3] to expore the possibility of a new HTTP
method; there was *no* dissent amongst the WG members present on the call to
maintaining the closed status of this issue as reported in [4,5].

I was also actioned by the WG to reiterate that the WG regards issue 133 as
closed.

Nouning verbs... :-)

I am not aware of any position on this within the WG.
