Is this actually stated in BP? All I could find was that both 200 and
202 responses are allowed for an empty response to a successful request,
with the comment

/Despite the fact that the HTTP 1.1 assigns different meanings to
response status codes "200" and "202", in the context of the Profile
they should be considered equivalent by the initiator of the request.
The Profile accepts both status codes because some SOAP implementations
have little control over the HTTP protocol implementation and cannot
control which of these response status codes is sent./

So for BP compliance the client should not care which of these is
returned by the server.

I'll try a decoupled client on Metro and post the results.
