'Transfer' is the generalization of /all/ commands specified by HTTP - just
as 'invoke' is the generalization of /all/ commands issued via RPC (of some
kind).

The HTTP specializes 'transfer' into GET/PUT/POST/DELETE (the 'DELETE' is an
odd one though... 'transfer' might not be generalized enough).
An RPC system would specialize 'invoke' into
'debitChecking()/transferFunds()/logError()' etc.
