That *is* supposed to be a rule: that you can GET the same URL
as many times as you want with no changes. Otherwise caching
would not work. I know that "hit counters" break this rule,
which is why they are meaningless in the presence of caching.
Changes are, according to the architecture, supposed to be
done only by other methods such as POST and PUT.
