GET request lifecycle
A GET request results in the following sequence of events:
The init quotation is called.
The authorize quotation is called.
If the GET request was generated as a result of form validation failing during a POST, then the form values entered by the user, along with validation errors, are stored in HTML form values.
The display quotation is called; it is expected to output an HTTP response on the stack.

Any one of the above steps can perform validation; if validation-failed is called during a GET request, the client receives a <400> error.

HEAD request lifecycle
A HEAD request proceeds exactly like a GET request. The only difference is that the body slot of the response object is never rendered.

POST request lifecycle
A POST request results in the following sequence of events:
The validate quotation is called.
The authorize quotation is called.
The submit quotation is called; it is expected to output an HTTP response on the stack. By convention, this response should be a <redirect>.

Any one of the above steps can perform validation; if validation-failed is called during a POST request, the client is sent back to the page containing the form submission, with current form values and validation errors passed in a Furnace conversation scope.
