Should the canonical case for GET/POST/PUT/DELETE be lowercase instead of
uppercase?  IE (8 and 9PP4) seem to treat it as lowercase, and they're the
only ones that canonicalize case at all here, as far as I can tell.  This
alerts "get" in IE8/9PP4 and "GeT" in all other browsers: <!doctype
html><script>var el = document.createElement("form");
el.setAttribute("method", "GeT"); alert(el.method);</script>
