I would just say that forms always get POST'ed, why would you ever need
some other method?

Because you need to know where the end of the message is, the client can't
close the connection until it gets back a reply. You either need a
Content-Length: or you can use a message boundary by encoding a multipart:

POST /hyplan/sanders.html HTTP/1.0
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary="somestring"

Content-type: application/x-www-textform
