I guess you find obvious that SQL should have separate SELECT/INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE statements ;-)
Similarly each http "method" is intended for a particular purpose. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol#Request_methods
As, unlike SQL, you are writing what happens when a particular "http statement" is received by your server, you are not forced to adhere to any existing convention but your API will be likely harder to use by other developers.
