Didier replies:
OK Mark if we stick to using solely the HTTP GET method then we need to
create a URI sufficiently flexible to allow the formulation of rich queries.
URLs are a complete breakdown on this matter.

This will be a necessary and sufficient condition to offer a good
alternative to the actual practice to use the HTTP POST method as a document
fetch invocation.
