Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-145) Section 8.2 Define X-HTTP-Method request header

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-145?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=31519#action_31519 ] 

Michael Pizzo commented on ODATA-145:

Alternatively we could simply remove the reference to X-HTTP-Method from section 10.5.1.

Verb tunneling was introduced before a lot of clients supported PUT and DELETE. Now that those verbs are fairly common do we want to continue to require services to support verb tunneling?

Note that the semantics of the header require that services that don't support tunneling ignore the header - so an intended PUT could be interpreted as a POST if the service doesn't support verb tunneling. This puts the burden on the client to determine whether the service supports post tunneling before attempting to use it.
