AFAICT Paul is correct; it seems to be merely an omission from the
HTTP spec that GET requests don't explicitly forbid sending an entity
body. Moreover, if caching proxies don't respect the entity body, it
wont solve my original problem anyways.

So, it seems the answer would be for my application to better
normalize my documents for efficient querying. (No surprise!)

Too bad though, that did sound like a fun bite-size patch on which to
practice my Erlang...  :^D
