How can anyone on the web possibly think there is no need for GET? Think about HTTP! Every browser and server would have to be rewritten to use only POST. An enormous blackout of the web would result untill all web software was replaced. Then all CGI programs and servlets would have to be rewritten. Every time you refreshed a dynamic web page you'd get that annoying "This page contains data that resulted from a POST operation: Do you want to resubmit? " message! Protect the precious word GET with all your might. You can have GET when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers!
