This has nothing to do with GET vs. POST.   If you fetch a resource by
GET, there is nothing to prevent the server from composing the entity
body on the spot.  You are merely guaranteed (architecturally speaking)
that no matter how many times you repeat the request, you get the same
*resource* (not to be confused with the same entity body, as in the
case of a time-of-day server); the resource is not side-effected by the
GET operation.
