That would be so nice to see such a proposal accepted for HTML 5.0, in
addition to adding support for PUT and DELETE actions.
Even though the URI template RFC is not finalized yet, we already have a
complete support for it, on the server-side, in the Restlet framework.
We happily use them for our URI-based routing and I think they add a lot
of expressiveness while keeping a simple syntax. Usage example:
They are also supported in WADL, the RESTful description language, and
in the OpenSearch specification. Extending their usage to HTML forms
sounds like a logical and useful step.
