I tend to be in the "guideline for now" camp, but I see us slowly shifting over to establishing standards where it makes sense. Once the error codes discussion truly starts to converge toward consensus (something I feel it's close to, but not quite there yet), it seems reasonable to make it a guideline. As far as standards go—if we go with the idea of header addition to tell the client about the codes, it becomes something that can easily be added to all OpenStack APIs, and once that happens, then I can foresee it becoming a formal standard recommended by the API WG… -- Kevin L.
