The method and formmethod  attributes only allow for GET and POST HTTP methods,
but PUT and DELETE would also be valid methods for a form. There is no reason a
server should not be able to serve forms with these methods.

Their absence in HTML also means that an HTTP REST service using PUT and DELETE
cannot adequately describe its interface by HTML, which defeats HATEOAS.
