I understand this up to the point at which I see an example like the
following in the SOAP Spec.:

GET /travelcompany.example.org/reservations?code=FT35ZBQ

I have to parse this.  If parsing wasn't meant to happen and URIs opaque,
why doesn't the Spec. use example URIs like the following:

GET /travelcompany.example.org/reservations/FT35ZBQ
