Re: Section 14.36 Range, and PUTs

Ohmygod, I don't think we've really ever contemplated how Range
requests should work with PUT. Personally, I think it should be
disallowed. Illegal. An error. MUST NOT send. ABEND, eh?, forbidden,
protocol violation; horns should go off, alarms should ring, etc.
Also with POST and DELETE. Otherwise, you might have people believing
that DELETE with Range: 10-12 means delete just those bytes?

Range is like "accept", it's a request-header that applies to the
result, not the operation.
