I'd like to add an error code for this.

In general, I don't think we have a consistent view on error codes and error strings at the moment.  We removed a lot of error codes around the time of the Paris interim, many of which could not be sent on the wire and so really needed to be removed.  But we haven't added many(if any?) back and this seems like a good one to add.

But if we think the error code is providing too much information to the peer, then error details is almost certainly even more, unless it's always empty, in which case what's the point?
