I'm WAY WAY behind on this thread, but I really need to jump in on this 

I COMPLETELY disagree with you on this one.   There is NOTHING in the HTTP 
spec that says "RM partial responses are 202" or "SOAP faults are 500", 
etc....      Our HTTP transport should NOT have any of that stuff coded into 

The mapping of SOAP faults to response code 500 is part of the SOAP spec.   
Thus, the SOAP layer should be setting that. 

The RM response code mappings are part of the RM spec.   The RM layer should 
be specifying that.

There should not be any RM logic burned into the transports.   That's bad.    
I'm OK with possibly adding a couple methods to help make the RM capabilities 
easier, but burning the logic into the transports is bad.   Making the 
transports very complex to write is also bad.

Anyway, I don't know all the details (I'm way behind on the discussion 
threads), but that point just jumped out as "not good."  (IMO)
