I don't support adoption because:

- The introduction provides an inaccurate and self contradictory description of GET, as detailed in this message: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2020JulSep/0198.html

- The name of the method appears too restrictive, as a safe and idempotent equivalent to POST, which is what the draft essentially defines, would be useful beyond search operations.

I would support the adoption if the introduction was amended and the draft was extended beyond providing a SEARCH method to something more generic, such as, for instance, a COMPUTE method.
