I agree.

If PUT and DELETE were available with HTML forms I'd be using them.  (I
actually tried it a long time ago after reading the HTTP spec.)

I even know a few artists (who markup HTML) that, once learning a little
more about HTTP and the other HTTP methods, actually tried using them since
it made more semantic sense.  (Although they didn't use the word "semantic"
when asking me why it wasn't working.  But... the point is that I even know
"artist types" that would use them if they could.)

See ya
