Of course. Some RAs are "slim", while others are real "fat" (like calling a
command that uses REST API to query a java server that runs a command which
finally checks the status of the service. Maybe even worse.).

No, it's to avoid an "error cascade".

Your suggestion would require to modify multiple operations in multiple
resources every time it'S needed, while my idea was to "flag" corresponding
operations once, and let some rule decide what to do. Agreed, the rule would
eventually do the same from a higher perspective, but the "configuration" would
not change very time.

For the moment let's assume I know it ;-) ping-node, maybe.
