Subject Validation HTTP Response Code
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 15:28:02 GMT

Currently, failing a validation function, returns 401 Unauthorized,
which indicates the response has failed HTTP authentication. I think a
more appropriate response code would be 422 Unprocessable Entity,
given that validation is a domain-specific semantic problem.

PS. Also, I don't think "Document Validation" belongs under the
heading of "Security Features" on the wiki.
