 GET/POST/etc. are *HTTP* methods.

Sure, but they're the same as any other method that goes into
Call.setOperationName().  i.e. they're application layer semantics.

HTTP, and I think that does a disservice to the protocol-neutrality of SOAP.  I would much
prefer something like Call.setIdempotentOperation(true), and then let the binding figure out
that in the HTTP case, that means you use GET.

Did you get my reply[1] to Stuart, and Noah's "+1"?

The method cannot be derived from the MEP.
