Yes. Ideally, it could also say something that proxies MAY deal with them and 
that if they decide to deal with them, they actually still speak HTTP even if 
the URL it passes on is another protocol.

In reality, it tends to mean that nothing but GET works, even if I've heard of 
HTTP proxies that actually support ftp upload using PUT!
