Mark:
Did you mean a single GET verb rather than GetWSDL, GetPolicy, etc.?

All the best, Ashok

Well, I think a much stronger case could be made for doing this if the operation were simply "GET" (I thought you were an 80/20 GET guy now, Dave? 8-) and a derefencable URI is used.  Then you only have to specify a new term that means "this resource is metadata about this other resource".  There might already be done, for all I know; a quick scan of Dublin Core didn't turn anything up, but somebody else might have defined one.
