Sorry Stuart, I guess I thought I was replying to you when I was
replying to Marc.  Long-thread-itis.  I apologize.

As for the undefined behaviour, I have strong believe that we should
make it mandatory that a user specify the method.  For example, in
Apache Axis, I've been talking with Sam Ruby and he's agreed with me[1]
that the Web method should be specified in setOperationName(), the call
that is used to specify the WSDL operation that is invoked on the remote
object.  In the case of setOperationName (and I assume, the equivalent
for all other SOAP/WSDL libraries), it must always be used and has
no default value.  For the same reason, I believe that the Web method
should not have a default value (and fwiw, I raised this[2] with WSD).
