Hmm, good question.  I don't think I ever had a strong feeling about 
faultHint itself.  I think the choices that represent my position would be 
either of:

* Set faultHint based only on HTTP status code,  but keep in mind that 
faultHint plays no role in determining whether SOAP will consider the 
envelope to be a fault 

* Don't give a faultHint at all

I agree, you should not have to parse the envelope to get through this 
part of the state machine.  Thanks for clarifying this point of confusion.
