Sorry, it just got to me that this is not optimal at all - for example
having to return the same 1000 faults in the response element...

It is a bit cumbersome for the developer but it is better to return
the direct SOAP fault in case there's an error concerning all of the
activities (including the case of 1 activity) in the vector. So I
think the WSDL needs to be corrected so to add some faults (i.e.
NotAuthorizedFaults) to some operations (i.e. TerminateActivities,
GetActivityDocuments) as it lacks some of them currently.
