No?
I've got a whois form that is accessed by way of:
http://whois.mydomain.tld/
and no matter what you put into the location field of your browser after the /, you'll be returned with http://whois.mydomain.tld/ in your location: bar, and an empty form, waiting for you to place a Domain name, IP address, AS number, or RP into the field. The location bar never reveals the query, and can't be manipulated.
So I'd have to respectfully disagree with your assertion.

    I did not mention the location bar :) The location bar is irrelevant . The HTML can be manipulated. The HTTP can be manipulated. POST changes nothing.

    Everything that your browser sends to a web server can be manipulated. Using POST instead of GET just means it doesn't show in the location bar, which makes it slightly more difficult than simply editing the URL.
