It may be valid to say that with one HTTP binding, 2xx will mean that it's
not a fault and the purchase is ok (well in the envelope, you may also
have "modifiers" to the success, like "ok but delayed").
But it can be wrong for another HTTP binding. In any case, your proxy will
know if the P.O is ok only by processing the envelope.
