That was for non existant operations. Though we should decide on what to
do for that as well. I'm in favor of 404 for non existant database.
I'm still in favor of Theo's suggestion of a diagnostic in an explain
response for an unknown operation.
-> unknown db, 404, can be handled by web server
-> unknown op, explain+diag, handled by srw
