I was expecting this response  ;)

We could grandfather the current “errors” structure by, e.g., using a “choice”...

We don’t even have to wait for RC-next, as someone could submit a short I-D for just this issue.  We just need to define a way for the client to signal to the server its preferences…likely the existing "Accept-Type” header could be used.
