@marten-seemann Thank you for elaborating. To me it sounds that they would look like one symptom to the reciever; i.e. an invalid PN in ACK.

I was wondering if there is a intent to use the error code for other symptoms, because it would imply that there are group of errors that might be categorized as a group (based on my understanding that we assign error codes to each feature or category).

Though I am not strongly opposed to having an error code for this case, I fear if having an error code for this opens can of worms (i.e. "we have error code for this, so why not have another error code for X"). Therefore am trying to see what the line we would be trying to hold is.
