In the SOAP message, it was the action being requested.  How did it
suddenly turn into a parameter?  Parameters in an identifier are
things that the client isn't required to understand.  Is it still an
encoding if it changes the semantics of the message?

Just some pedantic silliness on a Friday afternoon, in an attempt to
explain that encoding messages in URIs is broken.
