>From an implementation point of view, being able to classify an error as either a connection error or a stream error would simplify error reporting since we'd be able to classify an error as either a connection error or a stream error without having to include extra information with the error.

As an example, at the moment, when returning a `HTTP_MALFORMED_FRAME` error from a function, I have to include whether the `HTTP_MALFORMED_FRAME` is a stream error or a connection error since it can be both. If every error could be classified as either a connection error or a stream error, I wouldn't have to include this extra information since a `HTTP_MALFORMED_FRAME` error would always be a connection error.
