No, I think this is seriously flawed. If a server returns a 200
but a subsequent POST fails, you've screwed the client. 201 indicates
ONLY the usability of the POST command.
Or are you seriously advocating that a client which received a 200,
and subsequently failed a POST should then retry with an IHAVE?
