This implies that if I have a body with a fault as a direct child but 
the body also has additional child elements then the message isn't 
recognised as carrying fault info. Seems a bit arbitrary to me.

This is why the idea of moving the fault outside the body and making 
messages either carry a body or a fault appealed to me. Lots of 
commentators were in favour of this change and I therefore think we 
should consider its merits further.
