Hi Mark!

The proposal[1] for making faults first class citizens of the interface
followed discussions[2] at the Sunnyvale F2F regarding a number of
issues surrounding faults defined in separate operations, in particular
joining multiple faults from multiple operations in multiple bindings,
and recognising if two faults defined in separate operations were 
in fact identical.

Seven months on i think there is still consensus to keep the status quo,
and the hoisting of faults still resolves several tricky issues as well as 
being a useful communication - a clear enumeration of all the abstract
faults which may be generated by an interface.

So i say we should follow your suggestion and provide more explanatory 
text either in Part 1 or the Magnus opus that has become the Primer.
