That message does not make it clear why the granularity is desired at
the application layer. E.g. do you expect these to be used mostly for
debugging or do you expect the implementation to do different things
depending on the error it gets? If it's the former having whatever
error name is fine as long as the message is detailed and debugging
tools are good. If it's the latter we might need something else.
