    496    New methods &MUST-NOT; prohibit a message-body on either the request or
    497    the response message; however they &MAY; specify that only a zero-length
    498    body is allowed.
     496   Due to the parsing rules defined in &message-body;, definitions of HTTP
     497   methods cannot prohibit the presence of a message-body on either the request
     498   or the response message (with responses to HEAD requests being the single
     499   exception). Definitions of new methods cannot change this rule, but they can
     500   specify that only zero-length bodies (as opposed to absent bodies) are allowed.
