Section 1.3 of URIs, Addressability, and the use of HTTP GET and POST 
states:

Use POST if:

     * The interaction is more like an order, or
     * The interaction changes the state of the resource in a way that 
the user would perceive (e.g., a subscription to a service), or
     * The user be held accountable for the results of the interaction.

That last point sounds wrong. I expect a word is missing. For example, 
"The user would be held accountable for the results of the interaction." 
or "The user will be held accountable for the results of the interaction."
