Don Box has written about GData and INVOKE and how HTTP headers are used to get across the meaning of DELETE, PUT, etc.

This isn't the only way it can work, but in fact is a degradation if a firewall is blocking DELETE and friends.

Rails is getting simply restful, and is doing its own pragmatic hacks to get across various methods on clicks.

Maybe 2007 is time for browsers to support all of the HTTP methods in a nice way. Maybe we can have a standard way to <a href="...." method="delete">>nuke it</a>
