    In the case of a fetch failure, the interpreter context must use a
detailed event type telling which specific HTTP or other
protocol-specific response code was encountered. The value of the
response code for HTTP is defined in [RFC2616]. This allows
applications to differentially treat a missing document from a
prohibited document, for instance. The value of the response code for
other protocols (such as HTTPS, RTSP, and so on) is dependent upon the

How widely implemented are non-http response codes?  For instance, DNS really
doesn't have response codes as such -- should one fake the proxy
return codes from
DNS errors?

"When the day comes that anyone can bend our country's laws and
lawmakers to serve selfish, competitive ends, that day democratic
government dies. And we're just optimistic enough to believe that once
the facts are on the table, American public opinion will walk in with
a big stick." -- Preston Tucker, June 15, 1948
