Shouldn't that be every operation which is idempotent, where the request
has no headers, where the body contains only one child (i.e., no multiref),
where there are no structured parameters, and where the ultimate URI is
relatively short?

I still am wondering what is wrong with the current HTTP GET bindings for
web services (other than the fact that they are not widely implemented).
