You mean http methods, api methods or methods in the sense of "strategies"?

Just one observation here.
Digest mode is NOT required by the spec, so you may find containers that do NOT implement it.
Additionally, although Client Certificate is required, the spec doesn't say that SSL must be used (actually, most containers use SSL for that, but it's NOT a requirement).
