THAT makes life *a lot* easier for UA implementors. When something is
specified in detail they don't have to spend time testing all the
other UAs and writing tests for edge cases to see what behaviour is

You have a good point about GET URLs though.. Might it break any
existing page to make this a requirement only for POST? Most likely
not since IE isn't doing it anyway..
