That's not an identifier, it's a serialized method invocation.  You are
requiring that the consumer of it know what "getUserDetails" means.

Lots of Web developers may use HTTP URIs that include what looks like
a method name, but the key difference from your example is that they
don't require the user of that URI to know what the method means,
because they return the goods on a GET.
