That wouldn't surprise me.   The Recommendation really doesn't insist normatively on how application errors are handled, and I suspect it would in some cases be difficult to get agreement on what's an error at the application level anyway.  So, it wouldn't be surprising at all if certain libraries or runtimes made the assumption that SOAP faults were related to middleware rather than application issues.  I should have acknowledged that in my last note.  I just wanted to point out that it's definitely OK per the Recommendation to use SOAP faults for application-level errors should you wish to.
