If you are revealing your abstractions (like REST requires), always POSTing of HTTPS wins because the noun and verb are kept together. However, always POSTing over HTTPS does not require that you always have a noun and a verb.
So if you are playing by RESTs rules, always POSTing over HTTPS wins. But always POSTing over HTTPS wins because you don't have to reveal your abstractions.
You seem to be an easily amused guy who picks the contexts he likes while ignoring the larger picture.
