Heh, well rather than open up this one again, I'll just point out
a thread that already covered the discussion;

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-dist-app/2001Jun/0015.html

For some more context about why I believe 500 is the right choice, see;

http://www.markbaker.ca/2001/07/SoapUses/
http://internet.conveyor.com/RESTwiki/moin.cgi/SoapFaultsShouldNotUseThe200ResponseCode

FWIW, if SOAP were only used for RPC, and HTTP was only used as a
transport protocol, 200 would be a better response code.
