You raised an issue on the xml-dist-app list[1] regarding how a SOAP
node which encounters an error after the message has begun streaming
should behave; this was logged as issue 77[2]. 

After discussion, the Working Group has decided that the text in the
current draft[3] is sufficient to address this problem without
specifically calling it out, as SOAP requires Faults to be
represented in certain ways, and for message processing to occur in
the manner specified. SOAP applications which encounter recoverable
errors (e.g., a missing row in a database) should define conventions
that indicate them without the use of Faults.

Please let us know if this resolution is acceptable.
