A hopefully friendly amendment:

SOAP modules and extensions MAY define custom [action] values for the  
faults they describe or MAY designate use of the following [action]  
value instead:

   http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/soap/fault

The above [action] value SHOULD be used for generic SOAP faults  
including version mismatch, must understand, and data encoding unknown.
