Hi all

This is great to see. I've been a fan of this method since I first learned about it years ago. Darrel Miller and I have had many conversations on this..

One place I think this would be valuable is for GraphQL usage. One of the common critiques of GraphQL is that the HTTP caching story is very limited, as by default all requests are via POST.

The GraphQL HTTP w/g has done some work to specify how different methods can be used but you are still limited by the fact that the query is sent via the query string.

HTTP SEARCH would be great for GraphQL allowing complex GQL queries to be sent in an HTTP friendly and cachable fashion.
