Could have been me;

But I see from the Feb 12 IRC archives that the TAG is going to contact
the IETF about the possibility of adding QUERY method.  Did I understand
that correctly?  If so, I'd be against that for this reason ("QUERY"
means "get stuff"), and also because there's a perfectly valid use of
POST for this that obeys all of Tim's axioms, AFAIK;

To do these completely without a priori knowledge that a resource would
accept a query and process it this way, we could define an extension
header, or use Sean's RDF-Type header[1] (which might be more aptly
named Resource-Type);

HEAD /query HTTP/1.1


HTTP/1.1 200 Ok
