The way to differentiate them (if you care) is to look at the
"command" attribute of the request object, IMO.  That would tell you
whether you were looking at data from GET, or POST, or HEAD, or
whatever.  I see no reason to pass the data differently, though.
Parameters are parameters.

(Of course, you can use query data with POST as well as with GET.)
