We need to decide whether PUSH is limited to GET (/HEAD), or extensible. 
If it is supposed to work with other methods (and that's what the rough 
consensus in the interim meeting (*)) was, then we should prepare for 
safe methods with payloads no. If we do not, we'll need to rev the base 
protocol which seems to be a very bad idea.
