I agree that this would be conceptually cleaner layering, having the 
message body include all and only the information that is semantically 
relevant to the application (since the operation name is clearly 
semantically relevant if it is used to dispatch).  However, my perception 
is that this isn't the direction the industry winds are blowing.
