: o The message processor would have a pretty limited number of verbs (could
: have just "process this"). The verbs don't have to be limited to just the
: fab four, either.
There could be a lot of them, as long as they make sense when applied
to *any* resource:
example: GET /my/bank/account (good)
example: LOCK /my/bank/account (good)
example: GETSTOCKQUOTE /my/bank/account (bad)*
It is a matter of consistency, not parsimony, although the latter is
probably a desirable side-effect.
* until my bank account becomes publicly traded, anyway
