The solution I added to the spec wasn't exactly a direct response to Anne's
comment 0.  Since the solution was to move away from codes, I resolved it
WONTFIX with comment 1.

* resolving potential ambiguity of exception codes
* making exception type discrimination simpler for authors and bringing DOM
exceptions more into line with JS exceptions were the aims of the proposal.

The ambiguity yes, I will admit it is more of a theoretical problem.
