Sounds good, and it would be more consistent that way. I was a quick  
search and replace, copy-paste work, so I've just added it to the  
soap output (in CVS for now).

Indeed. Not sure what you mean by "where it is defined" - if you mean  
where, in the code, the fatal error output is triggered, the triggers  
are scattered through the validator code. But each fatal error has an  
id, too, (such as fatal_referer_error, fatal_no_content…) and we  
could be using that as well. Would it make your life easier?
