Any reason not to use actual HTTP codes?  I'm not aware of any major 
deficiency in them.  Most of them won't apply to us, which is fine, they 
don't seem to apply to HTTP either.  We can extend the scheme on our own 
if we find a good reason to.

That implies 16 bits, or a varint.  I would avoid a string or varstring 
here; we already have a text field.  Varint vs. 16 bits is a minor 
issue, and arguments can be made in both directions.  I flipped a coin 
and got heads, so I'll say varint.
