    978       </p>
    979       <p id="rfc.section.3.2.1.p.2">HTTP methods are generic; that is, they are potentially applicable to any resource, not just one particular media type, "type"
    980          of resource, or application. As such, it is preferred that new HTTP methods be registered in a document that isn't specific

    984          (with responses to HEAD requests being the single exception). Definitions of new methods cannot change this rule, but they
    985          can specify that only zero-length bodies (as opposed to absent bodies) are allowed.

     962      <p id="rfc.section.3.1.2.p.2">Like the definition of safe, the idempotent property only applies to what has been requested by the user; a server is free

     965      </p>
     966      <p id="rfc.section.3.1.2.p.3">Idempotent methods are distinguished because the request can be repeated automatically if a communication failure occurs before
     967         the client is able to read the server's response. For example, if a client sends a PUT request and the underlying connection
     968         is closed before any response is received, then it can establish a new connection and retry the request because it knows that
     969         repeating the request will have the same effect even if the original request succeeded. Note, however, that repeated failures
