I would like to see some documentation of this threat model before considering it in the design of specifications. I would consider exception messages to be equivalent to the browser engine major version, which is already available to script.

If there is concern about leaking sensitive information to script then I know Blink has a mechanism for providing sanitized and unsanitized error messages, the latter only being available on the Javascript console and not to script. I suspect this feature was inherited from WebKit.
