No, actually the option to use a number of verbs is core to http, not
sure if it's arbitrarily many or just GET, HEAD, POST, PUT, DELETE,
TRACE, OPTIONS, and a few selected others.  As I understand it WebDAV
may add VERSION and certainly specifies the semantics for using it's

Actually the PUT verb is super useful for webservice implementations
because you can use it to send arbitrary data into your service.  Its
handy on REST implementations and perhaps even more so if you start
breaking the REST rules (bad developer no twinkie)
