Spec clarification: can a signal and a method have the same name?

A question for the specification gurus:
Signals and methods are both identified by a pair (interface, member)
where the member part is in the same format for both.
Are bindings expected to support a signal and a method in the same
interface having the same name?
(The OLPC's DataStore has methods called things like 'delete', which
emit signals also called things like 'delete'. I realise this is
an unconventional naming scheme - not my choice - but I don't know
whether this is something I should be supporting or forbidding in dbus-python.
At the moment dbus-python doesn't support this without some awkwardness, or
possibly at all.)
