As a minor editorial comment, in part of part 2, section 4.2.2 [1], the
last sentence says

"An RPC response MUST NOT contain both a result and a fault, because a
result indicates success and a fault indicates failure."

This seems to be a leftover from old days: Given the description of
faults as part of the general SOAP model [2], it is impossible to have
the case that a SOAP message can contain a fault and a non-fault body at
the same time. As a result, this MUST requirement seems to be at best
redundant with the general SOAP rules.

I propose to simply delete the sentence. Are there any objections to
this?
