It's been like that for probably a decade. E_FAIL was eradicated from the WiX toolset code base at one time. There was also a phase where S_FALSE was believe to be a reasonable thing to return. That belief has also been fixed, but some old code was not changed because "break".

I've commented on this bug a bit, and would like to have a discussion on it in today's meeting. I've tried to go back in time to see when this behavior was last changed, but I can't seem to find a way to go back farther than git on Codeplex.  If anyone has a HG mirror of the old Wix code, it would be interesting to see who commented out the line "// hr = E_FAIL;" inside of xmlutil.cpp in the XmlGetAttribute function.
