You can respond with 4xx and 5xx codes, sure. This should never be an 
issue. You'll only ever respond with a 4xx code in the case of a 
client-side error, which should never happen, and you'll only ever respond 
with 5xx codes in the case of a server-side error, in which case you might 
as well be offline.
