I just spotted this;

"For example, a conventional Web server (i.e. one not written
specifically to conform to this specification) might be used to
respond to SOAP-initiated HTTP GET's with representations of
Content-Type "application/soap+xml". Such interoperation is not a
normative feature of this specification."
 -- http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-soap12-part2-20030624/#httpinterop

But of course, the WebMethod feature supports exactly that (unless I'm
misunderstanding what "SOAP-initiated" means).

I expect this wasn't removed/replaced after the (late) addition of the
WebMethod feature.
