Nor is HEAD (except in the sense of "head them off at the pass", which
isn't what is meant by HTTP HEAD)...or is it? I guess it has become a
verb like "Google" has become a verb.
If people feel that a verb is desirable, perhaps it should be something
that could be used in a sentence. GET works well: "GET that web page".
POST does too: "POST the form contents". PUT and DELETE likewise. ERR
doesn't seem quite right, because it's not transitive, and the publisher
is the one who erred--why should the client ERR in response to an
error? Something like REPORT would work better...and might be useful
for not-yet-imagined things besides errors.
On the other hand, I prefer PaceServiceError.
No. Please not "REPORT". It's taken:
On the other hand, "COMPLAIN" seems to make a lot of sense (this was
proposed earlier by somebody else, I'm just repeating it :-).
