I do. I don't think Andy does because of the "must" and the broad way  
he reads "refuses". But I've proposed text to Andy that he seems to  
favor, so we'll see how that goes.

My other suggestion was just to drop this WSDL fault completely. I've  
convinced myself that it's pretty useless and unnecessary.
