disagree. i much prefer the brevity of the numeric codes. they are
extremely well known; there's no excuse for misinterpreting a 404
response code. the argument for misinterpretation is slightly stronger
for less well known ones like say 422 and 423, but that's such a small
set that it's trivially learned.
