Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-420) Response codes 404 and 405: MUST instead of SHOULD

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-420?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=33617#action_33617 ] 

Stefan Drees commented on ODATA-420:

I like the updated proposal, but do not know, if its from a security standpoint a best practice to enforce a 404 info regardless of the "probing" method.

In other words, it is maybe not good in separation of concerns terms. We (OData) handle requests, inside a common HTTP serving context.

As I know HTTP server configuring and behaviors, the "method not allowed" errors may span a "wide defense area", i.e. being triggered early, by comparing a portion of the path only and not even trying to resolve the full path to an object or method or even handing the request over to a backend application service. So maybe a regex is tested and if not match early out.
