Which makes me wonder if each desired "method" should really be available via 
a require command?

I prefer a require commend for each method and syntactically checking
the URL, generating an error on bad syntax.  And I would go as far as
allowing semantic errors to cause errors on behalf of the implementation.

I ran various SMS gateways over the years and if there is one common
problem, it is people embedding letters and all kinds of special
characters in phone numbers, like @ and 8-bit characters, or doubling
the number or the area prefix which yields way too long numbers.
Simply dropping those numbers results in complaints why important SMS
were not sent.  At one time I had almost 10% bad numbers and I am sick
of complaints.
