For the (end-user visble) index.php, I would assume that you'd only
allow the 'get' verb here.

No. Security is effectively done behind the PLG_invokeService call, in
the plugin. The webservices API doesn't know anything about the plugin's
idea of security - and how could it?

I would assume it's doing some scrubbing but only as far as the protocol
(e.g. Atompub) is concerned.
