Sure. The first and second order implicatures (because
that's better than saying, managing paranoia). See
Grice's Maxims for some loose best practices.
Again: is it the case that the http verbs are deliberate
in making it possible to schlep with the fewest implications
based on the use of the network? I think so and I think
that is the substance of a TAG opinion. It might have been
with regards to deep linking and problems such as shortening
a URI to see other resources. The Brits made that illegal
and the TAG indicated that such a law was nonsense given
the architecture. IOW, if the sys admin didn't lock it
off, it's public by implication.

Semantic disambiguation by context is only one aspect of pragmatics.
There's also paralinguistics, such as "what are you communicating by
sending this message above and beyond the content of the message?",
"what are you communicating by not sending a message?" (insert
interferometer analogy here), "what can I infer about your intent
when you send this message?"
