To me this is just a straightforward bug. It's a mismatch in semantics
between a W3C specification and the Web's core protocol. An HTTP
resource has multiple methods and they are logically equivalent to
operations, not port types. Also, it would be easy to open this up to
allow any HTTP method and header.

Is there the possibility of forming a special interest group to work on
that binding as a parallel task to the rest of the specification?
