Validation errors cause 409 not 400 response

Validation error is incorrect arguments, so should be a "400 Bad Request" response. "409 Conflict" is for when there is a conflict creating two resources with the same identifier. Yet we get 409 for all validation errors.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Reading http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E409.html I've changed my mind - 409 is ok for an application level validation error.
