Looks that way, to me this is a subtle change in semantics, the first 
version says that the body of a fault message can only have one fault in 
the body but says nothing about any other EIIs in the body, the second 
that the body can only have one fault and no accompanying EIIs. We 
should be careful when incorporating comments like this that we don't 
subvert the WG process...

Either way, the text wasn't there when I posted the message you were 
replying to which explains the disconnect.
