           Summary: [WebDriver Spec]: 2.6 Simplify JSON wire protocol to
                    use one URL

Based on the current state of section 2.6, it looks like the JSON wire protocol
intends to follow Selenium's lead and use separate URLs for each command. Since
the session ID, command name, and parameters are included in each request
anyway, this seems unnecessarily complex. A strictly-conforming server would be
required to parse values from the URL for seemingly no other purpose than to
validate the JSON payload.

Perhaps it would be simpler for both clients and servers if one URL were used
for all commands.
