But until GET is extended to allow structured parameter blocks we have 
no alternative to using POST.

Let's say it simply and clearly. Web Services has exposed a substantial 
requirement for queries with complex parameters that cannot (as far I 
have seen so far) be expressed as orthodox GETs. The old distinction - 
between read-only GETs consisting of {name, value} lists and POSTs, 
which have the flexibility to pass XML blocks - is past its sell-by 
date. The angels have taken it for a friend. It is an expired paradigm.

Let's move on?
