Isn't this a non-issue since June 2003? SOAP 1.2 provides HTTP GET support:
Jim claims, "The fact is that regular Web Services have a far more uniform interface than the REST style."
But his term "uniform interface" is ambiguous. Is he referring to WSDL having a payload schema? Are 'uniform' and 'polymorphic' antonyms in this case? If he meant 'strongly typed', then why didn't he just say so?
