Not that I have a strong opinion on this, but I'd like to point out that the current design is somewhat inconsistent.

Now, three frame-level errors exist: MALFORMED_FRAME, WRONG_STREAM, UNEXPECTED_STREAM. Among the three, only MALFORMED_FRAME is being accompanied by a frame type. I am not sure if there is a good reason for MALFORMED_FRAME to be exceptional.
