I was being too subtle, perhaps.  I meant that if the SOAP fault uses
XML attributes, then a SOAP fault can't easily be transmitted using SOAP
RPC rules.  (Just like DCOM uses ORPCTHAT to convey exception
information back to the client.)

The rest of it -- hackiness of nested elements, parsing awkwardness, etc
-- is just opinion, so we can note it and move on.
