in thread POST vs GET & their intermingling.

I'm curious about something in it, too:
action %URI; #REQUIRED -- server-side form handler --
Perhaps I am misunderstanding how they use their terms, but I thought action was an optional attribute, but this states that it is required. By default, action is the same URL from which the browser received the request. While I always explicitly state the action, I can see the utility of occasionally leaving this tag off. Is this something that has changed in the specification?
