Ok, how about this:

interface PositionError {
    const unsigned short PERMISSION_ERROR = 1;
    const unsigned short PROVIDER_ERROR = 2;
    const unsigned short NOT_FOUND = 3;
    const unsigned short TIMEOUT = 4;
    const unsigned short UNKNOWN = 5;
    readonly int code;
    readonly DOMString message;
  };


All the best,
Andrei
