There is a vast difference between transmitting the page that the user arrived from (the original intention) and transmitting a list of keywords that the user entered.
Do you read every URL of every page you view - I don't think so.
Do you manually type in every search you use - I do think so.
The referrer header was never intended to transmit information entered by the user - please admit that much.
Incidentally, it would be technically easy to adjust browsers so that they can bookmark pages created using POST, so even that argument is not very strong. Also, I am not a Google-basher - this should be apparent from the extremely moderate language and statements that I have made.
