Strongly -1.  We have worked hard to separate keep the abstract interface
abstract.  HTTP methods are binding-specific, not interface-level
abstractions.

Okay, if it's per-binding.

Again, okay, if it's per-binding.

By "per-binding," I mean that each binding specifies this; it isn't in the
WSDL namespace.  This is because HTTP semantics are not necessarily
mappable to the semantics of other protocol bindings.
