Yes, I agree.

Hmm, I found this in the Mar 23 snapshot [1]

	"A SOAP fault is used to carry error information
	 within a SOAP message.

	"If present, a SOAP Fault MUST appear as a direct
	 child of the SOAP body and MUST NOT appear more
	 than once within a SOAP Body."

Which in the April 11 snapshot was moved down a paragraph and now says:

	"To be recognized as carrying SOAP error information,
	 a SOAP message MUST contain exactly one SOAP Fault
	 as the only child element of the SOAP body. A SOAP
	 fault element information item MAY appear within a
	 SOAP header block, or as a descendant of a child
	 element information item of the SOAP body; but,
	 in such cases, the element has no SOAP-defined
	 semantics."

From what I can see, this was part of incorporating Noah's comments for
part 1.
