Hi Mike,

That would be so nice to see such a proposal accepted for HTML 5.0, in 
addition to adding support for PUT and DELETE actions.

Even though the URI template RFC is not finalized yet, we already have a 
complete support for it, on the server-side, in the Restlet framework. 
We happily use them for our URI-based routing and I think they add a lot 
of expressiveness while keeping a simple syntax. Usage example:
http://www.restlet.org/tutorial#part11

They are also supported in WADL, the RESTful description language, and 
in the OpenSearch specification. Extending their usage to HTML forms 
sounds like a logical and useful step.

Regards,
Jerome Louvel
