But let's also be very clear that a fault is "generated" and that 
"generated" does not necessarily
imply "transferred" back to the originator of the message that triggered 
the fault. That would be
something defined by the binding specification employed. We chose 
"generated" very carefully
for this reason.

MUST contain a single SOAP Fault element information item as the only
child element information item of the SOAP Body"
