I'm trying to compare apples to apples.  I have done that with WSDL
port types and HTTP methods, and with URI schemes and names of WSDL
documents.  While I'd be happy to go up the stack comparing other
things if you request, there is certainly no need to do so because
I've made my point.  You haven't offered any evidence that I'm
incorrect.  All you've done here is throw in pears, plums, and bananas,
which only serves to confuse things.

There are objects, identified by URIs, with methods, on a network; Web
services have custom methods, Web resource have generic ones.  What's
wrong with that?
