re bookmarkable queries, how about this objective...

4.X Addressable Query Results

A common pattern of access is to send a query to a remote service
which evaluates it and returns the results. This fits naturally
into Web Architecture by making query results addressable resources.
The query language and protocol should straightforwardly result
in query results being addressable in URI space.

Here's a relevant bit of a TAG finding; it didn't naturally
flow as a quote, but the editor is encouraged to fit it in somehow.

"Use GET if: 
      * The interaction is more like a question (i.e., it is a safe
        operation such as a query, read operation, or lookup)."
