You can submit such kind of data via INPUT. Section 3.2.1 makes it
clear IMHO that you can submit line breaks and such
("reserved characters") if they are percent encoded. Lagrange
supports using shift+return for line breaks in the input field, and
I assume the line breaks are then duly percent encoded, although I
have not checked.

Of course that still leaves out how to edit stuff, and also the
maximum length of the whole URL. So in theory it is possible, but
not really practical.
