The revert above still hasn't merged.

The QA team blocked a change that updated HTTP status code, but removed
a stable interface with no deprecation.

The revert needs to land, now, and then the QA team can debate
deprecation / removal.

To stop this happening in the future, can we get tempest to gate on some
tempest plugins?

Just a gate job that runs when any code in the designated stable
sections of tempest change would be incredibly useful.
