From the mail on the xml-dist-app mailing list, it doesn't
look like this issue is "closed", in the sense that there
is continued discussion.

And I don't think there has been a substantive response to
the comments I made about the risks inherent in using
"500 sever error" for SOAP faults.

I would expect a substantive response before considering the
issue closed.
