REST of SOA the questions

After the REST of SOA a couple of people came up and asked me questions that could basically be summarised in the following
We've got a server development team that loves REST but as a Flash/Web/Ajax developer its really hard for me to work with
The two main reasons citied were
  1. The lack of PUT/DELETE from a browser, but server teams who still wanted to use it
  2. The size limit on GET
Now on the GET limit and the PUT/DELETE I suggested that the dev team should think about using a Proxy and having that map the URIs from those that work to the web to those that they want to use internally. But what it really came down to was that you had this amazing disconnect between the people doing the server side stuff and the poor buggers who had to consume it.
