sld and posting a getmap request

the sld specification mentions using http post to issue a getmap request encoded in xml, which contains an sld.

to the best of my knowledge, an xml post encoding has not yet been defined. all i could find in the 1.1.1 wms spec is the following: "The specification will be expanded with a Part 2 to support operation requests using HTTP POST." there seems to be some 'translation' of the request in the sld spec, but i don't know that the 1.2.0 wms ever came to be.

is there an accepted schema/dtd for posting a getmap request?

Any news on posting XML?

I will do the voodoo zombie thread trick and revive this one:
Is there any news on the status of the 02-017r1 document and the suggestions it makes?
Is posting XML in any way considered an "official" WMS request? The SLD specification (OGC 02-070) specifically mentions it as a part of WMS 1.2+, but I have been unable to find anything supporting this in the actual WMS specifications. (At least in the 1.3 specification; the 1.2 seems to have disappeared from the face of earth).

Fitz -

And this from one of the editors of the SLD Spec:

There is a discussion paper: doc 02-017r1

WMS Part 2: XML for Requests using HTTP Post (WMS POST) (Jeff Dlb)

which contains request schemas.

These were implemented in MapAccess and deployed at MassGIS:

http://maps.massgis.state.ma.us/mapaccess/main.jsp

including a post form of GetCapabilities with sections so that not all
1200 layers have to be returned with every request.
