I would like to understand exactly what's troubling you here.  Is it

 1) You don't think it makes sense to talk about "[using URIs] to
    perform actions", e.g. when we buy things online;

 2) You agree it makes sense, but you don't think it's an important
    case to discuss at all/architecturally;

 3) You agree it makes sense, but you think such use is
    uninterestingly different (architecturally) from the "get me some
    information" case;

 4) None of the above.
