Including the removal of all "Dynamic Errors" sections? That is drastic! But I'm
inclined to think it's a good idea:

-- The FS doesn't attempt to be complete on errors *anyway* (i.e., it doesn't
refer to specific error codes, and it totally ignores static errors).

-- I suspect that most of the 'Dynamic Error' rules cover cases where the
Dynamic Evaluation rules would simply fail to hold, and the inference would fail
to yield a value. So in a sense, the 'Dynamic Error' rules are redundant.
(Interestingly, I have a feeling that this is *not* true of many/most? static
errors.)

-- It would eliminate a fair bit of bulk, and some of the ickier rules.
