Your assumption is correct. The `message` attribute is a natural language description of the `code` attribute and may contain implementation-specific additional debugging information. It is intended for developers and not users and so should be provided in the language used for other developer messages such as Javascript console warnings.

In the Chromium implementation the `message` attribute is set to strings such as "User denied Geolocation" and "Geolocation has been disabled in this document by Feature Policy."
