I don't know what Geoff had in mind, but I've heard this complaint a
few times in reference to the HTTP binding using HTTP error codes to
communicate SOAP faults.  IMO, that's a feature, not a bug, as one
couldn't use SOAP RESTfully with HTTP without such a relationship
between SOAP and HTTP (i.e. where SOAP is viewed as an HTTP extension,
rather than a layer)
