Producing a mapping for all methods isn't required.

But somewhere, it MUST be said when the GET binding is appropriate,
versus when a POST binding is appropriate.

I assume you don't believe that it's a good thing to be able to send
any SOAP message with any binding.  But I understand that this is the
current interpretation of the word "binding" as used in SOAP 1.2; that
you can use them interchangeably without consideration for the content
of the SOAP message.  So perhaps calling this work a "suggested adjunct
to the SOAP 1.2 default HTTP binding" (or similar) would help clarify
that.
