Yes, http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-14.44

HTTP. If you are a web app developer, it is your job to learn it,
love it, live it, breathe it. At the very least, study RFC 2616
once to know what’s in there. Most people who try to “solve” some
problem with their web app architecture a) do so because they are
ignorant of all the facilities of HTTP and b) end up inventing a
worse wheel than what HTTP itself provides. The simplicity of
HTTP is deceptive; it conceals the deep deliberation that went
into choosing *this* form of simplicity vs some other one.

(Oh, and this is not a personal comment to you, Ryan – I mean the
“you”s above in the general sense.)
