There are several references in whenToUseGet-20030509.html
which reference RFC 2396 (URI) which are clearly
intended to reference RFC 2616 (HTTP).

I think there is an architectural blind spot in this
DRAFT TAG Finding, in that it does not note that there
are URIs other than "http" URIs or give any consideration
for the use of such.

"An important principle of Web architecture is that
 all important resources be identifiable by URI. "

Is it an architectural principle that they be
identifiable by HTTP URI? By a URI in a particular
set of preferred schemes for which "GET" and "POST"
make sense?

Most of the finding is nonsense if the URI scheme
is "mailto" or "data" or "urn".
