Yes.  But nothing prevents success from being accompanied by further
informative info in the diagnosticMessage field.

Correct. IIRC, there being at least a few of cases where we intentionally provide a diagnosticMessage with success. Whether this is one of those intentional cases or not, well, I'm not sure but I vaguely recall something about this one.

If that was the desire, it wasn't very effective. E.g., if there were multiple problems with a filter only the last message would have been returned.
