I wrote the original bit way back, and am prepared to justify it.

1. it lets client systems find out what went wrong on any invocation 
where they get an AxisFault back
2. it doesnt get included on other transports.
3. its very useful dealing with things like proxy quirks, security, etc.
4. it propagates. If you nest a SOAPFault in another soapfault, the 
underlying cause is still there.
Useful on more complex systems.
