there is some validity to this, but it is not overly practical to
make all order links POST forms.

the only side-effect being generated is placing something in a shopping
cart, and not placing an order. were it to place an order directly i
might see the point of your reference.

if you want behavior that is that way, you can easily make a post
form. but it is a lot of todo about nothing, imho.
