Would these types of differentiation between reasons for rejection be a 
good case for Warning: codes on a 403 response?

ie
  Warning: ... Legal Restriction
  Warning: ... Local administrative policy
  Warning: ... Authentication failed too many times. Your account is now 
closed
  ...

The body of 403 can as easily contain the legal disclaimer text as any 
other 4xx code.
