Mark,

You are indeed correct what my response is.  Please note that the section
you quote is listed in the out-of-scope section.  I disagree that mapping
all HTTP methods to SOAP methods is required to declare success.  What I
understood from finding on issue 7 was that GET - particularly
expressibility in URIs that are GET dereferencable - must be supportable.
And this proposal attempts to satisfy that finding, not a generic HTTP
Method to SOAP Method mapping.  FWIW, your mapping goal has never come up in
the TAG.

Cheers,
Dave
