I think the Binding Context should include a faultPolicy element where 
default behavior is specified and can be overridden.  An "admin service" 
(not part of SOAP 1.2 spec) could accept requests for Binding Context 
information and return it to the caller (should a sender want to know 
before or after sending a SOAP message).  If I get no response, I can use 
the admin service to ask for the faultPolicy and see that perhaps it was 
set send faults to a third party logging service.
