Re: Proposed HTML ping attribute

Looking at <>:

> TBL: use of POST is coherent in that GET might be cached and not update a counter.

For the record: a GET (or a HEAD) request can be sent in a way 
(cache-control: no-cache) such that intermediaries are disallowed to 
return a cached response. So cacheability itself IMHO is not an argument 
in favor of POST.
