IMO, 3463 is fine as it stands.  Temporary failures of the sort
discussed could be indicated via 4.7.0, which is specifically
provided for cases where "the problem cannot be well expressed
with any of the other provided detail codes".

The point was that 4.7.1 does a much better job of explaining what's
going on - so it isn't a case where "the problem cannot be well expressed".
In fact, 4.7.1 expresses perfectly the situation, except that 3463 didn't
seem to foresee that 4.7.X would be useful for many things....
