Hi Erik,

Another more compelling possibility is to simply say that "get" is the 
default method.  This is simpler editorially, does not introduce a further 
error-type, and aligns with the default currently used on the web.  Does 
that sound good?

That sounds reasonable except that it is a little annoying to have to 
add a new "method-error" error type, since this type does not exist yet.
