AFAIR, some devs wanted POST for some use cases, but I cannot comment on their 
behalf. There is currently one POST usage in the audioscrobbler module.

Useful APIs are rather different for GET than POST.

PUT is used to write a file over the network.
POST is more of a toolkit for request/response messaging.

The usage patterns and thus the API designs would be quite different.
