Comment (by mackensen):

 I've refreshed the patch and made a couple changes to the previous

 * Validation errors: 200. I agree completely w/bpetty. This isn't a 4xx
 error: the request was understood and the client received a response.
 * Closed comments, login required: 403
 * Duplicate comment: 409. I think this is better than a 403 as it's more
