Maybe I should describe our position more deeply.

Imagine one have 1000 workers and something breaks in one of them.
This broken worker somethimes returns BLA_BLA_HTTP_ERROR.

Yes, ideally this worker should be found and it should be fixed, but
it does not mean that user should see BLA_BLA_HTTP_ERROR, when there
are 999 workers in good shape.
