Subject: RE: [wsrp-wsia] [I#187] How does POST data reach the Producer

Title: Message
If the consumer has already done the work of breaking up the POST data why require that the protocol forwards it as a single entity to the producer? The scheme I submitted would (optionally) allow a processed POST to be forwarded as string/value and mime parts to a producer (who can always convert it to a single multi-part mime if it requires a single binary input.
An example use case for the consumer processing POST data would be a consumer portal that keeps an audit trail of user submissions.

A concrete suggestion follows:
The rationale is that POST data should be opaque to the Consumer. Hence, I suggest that we do not require the Consumer to parse the POST data in any way. Instead, the Consumer should pass an argument to the performInteraction operation (and not to the getMarkup). The argument may be called payload. This argument will contain the body of the HTTP request that comes from the browser as-is, excluding the HTTP headers - this should take care of all form POST scenarios, including document upload and general parameters.
With this thread of thought, requestParameters are not needed for form POST. They may or may not be needed for form GET (which is a separate issue).

This is not made clear. Two suggestions I heard - uploadData and requestParameters. Both have their problems. Maybe something more explicit?
