    491    New methods &SHOULD; be potentially applicable to any resource. I.e.,
    492    they should not be specific to any particular media type, "type" of

     491   HTTP methods are generic; that is, they are potentially applicable to any
     492   resource, not just one particular media type, "type" of resource, or
     493   application. As such, it is preferred that new HTTP methods be registered
     494   in a document that isn't specific to a single application, so that this is
     495   clear.

     505   New method definitions need to indicate whether they are safe (<xref
    504506   target="safe.methods"/>) and whether they are idempotent (<xref
    505    target="idempotent.methods"/>). They &MUST; also state whether they can be
     507   target="idempotent.methods"/>). They also need to state whether they can be
    506508   cached (&caching;); in particular what conditions a cache may store the
    507509   response, and under what conditions such a stored response may be used to
    508510   satisfy a subsequent request.
