Comment (by TomH):

 Well you can't have a default route that returns 405 because then it would
 do so for URLs which really don't exist.

 You would have to duplicate each URL with a second "match all" version
 that returned 405 and that is just not scalable.

 This should really be fixed in rails' URL matcher so that it remembers if
 the URL would have matched except for the method qualification and then
 returns 405 in that case.
