   The question we both have at this point is *why* – *why* does
   “post” ‘partly’ work? *Why* does “POST” work fully?

That can only be answered precisely by the programmers of the
server software.  They were probably smitten by Postel, blech,
and spewful of one-armed-if expressions and other such half-
sense.  [Insert more curmudgeonly harrumphing here.  :-D]
