That's not what I asked. "Request failure" and "processing cessation" 
are two different things. I assert that our definition of "generate a 
fault" should state that when a fault is generated (a) processing of the 
request in which the fault occurs ceases (b) some record of this fault 
is produced and possibly recorded (depending on log/trace config) (c) a 
fault message is optionally transmitted (if a response was expected this 
fault is transmitted in lieu of the response or no response is transmitted).
