Henry has covered this already, all I am hinting here is that a "Link:" 
request header route is going to be more feasible than getting a new 
verb added to HTTP. Basically, via a Link: headers in the request, one 
can indicate the nature of the request using RDF Language i.e., look at 
Link: as just another notation for representing relations using RDF 
Language (which is distinct for any specific notation).

Ultimately, all I see is a slot for SPARQL payloads, everything else (in 
my eyes) is a SPARQL redo adventure, for all the wrong reasons.

SPARQL is extremely powerful and useful, especially the SPARQL 1.1 
edition. Combine that with WebID-TLS and ACLs and you have everything we 
need ++.
