The spec says (section 7.13):

method (loadWithBody and loadWithDocument only)
     The method (e.g. for HTTP actions, 'POST', 'PUT') used to load the 
URI. If a null value, or a value that is not one of post or put, is 
passed to the method instead, the default value post is assumed.

This seems to indicate that only post and put is allowed, or am I 
misreading it?
