Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: QUOTA_EXCEEDED_ERR makes sense when you're trying to _set_
something, because disabling setting is like making the quota zero.
SECURITY_ERR makes sense when _opening_ something, because that's what's used
on the platform consistently for that kind of error. I think making these two
consistent would be inappropriate.
