There are no issues. Perhaps the only puzzling aspect of adding them
that I can see is that in interfaces there'd be two places to put
f&p's that relate to a given fault: the interface fault component and
all the fault reference components that use it. Of course f&p's
on the interface fault component apply across all operations, whereas
those on fault reference components only apply to the containing

By the way, in the spirit of hoisting faults to the same level as
operations, I think that if we had to choose between interface faults
or fault references as the only place f&p's are allowed to appear at,
I'd choose the former.

So +1 to fixing this anomaly.
