Now I'm confused. 8-/  I used to believe this, when I thought that
faultHint was authoritative, but now I wonder how you could say that
when, AFAICT, nowhere in the binding does it distinguish between a
fault received on a 200 response, and one received on a 500 response.
Both end up in the success state, and only the faultHint distinguishes
one from the other.

Woohoo, agreement! 8-)
