 Tim,
 every application block can contain data in any data model. The
fault detail is an example of such a block, just like the Body. 
The structure of the Fault element itself is modeled using XML 
Schema so that the core SOAP does not depend on one of the 
adjuncts, since the adjuncts are meant to be optional. 8-)
 It's exactly the same with env:Header and env:Body elements, 
both are declared in an XML Schema and both may contain data in 
any encoding.
 Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
