Agreed.  I also have no interest in discussing transport protocols.

Application interfaces, on the other hand, are presumably in scope.
So we can have discussions about whether FIPA's INFORM and REQUEST
operations are suitable/sufficient, right?  If so, then I claim that
discussions about GET and POST are also in scope.
