This model should be rephrased a bit to make it more clear what the  
requirements are. E.g. I think if you use POST it should not be a MAY but  
a MUST that 500 is returned.

Also what are the security errors you can get a 500 for? Are they not  
handled by 403? I think handling them with 403 is counter to how they are  
handled elsewhere though. Usually any kind of error is handled as a  
generic network error. I think it might be better to simply use 200 if the  
method was GET and 500 for everything else. You should probably also state  
what needs to happen with user/password arguments and maybe add a note  
that request headers are ignored. Furthermore, it has a note of sorts that  
you can expect a Content-Type header in the response, but it should be  
more detailed about what getAllResponseHeaders() will return. I.e. give a  
more complete definition of the response.
