Under the section, "2.3 PortType Description Component", in the
[1] WSDL v1.2 it stated as follows:

"Input-Only Operations: Operations which have only an input message. The
semantics are that when a message is sent to the service, the service
consumes it but does not produce any output message. There MUST NOT be any
fault messages indicated in this case."

Say a client sends a message with the "Input-Only Operation"
mode to a service. And there is a failure during the process at
the service site and the service is not returning the "fault"
message(s) according to the statement in the [1], how can the
client make decisions without having the fault message(s) from
service for the follow-up actions.

Any comments and/or pointers will be apprecated.
