Personally, I think I'd prefer to see a single topic somewhere that was
just concerned with writing all types of error messages-- that way it's
easier for a developer to find the part of the guidelines they're
looking for when they want to write one.  If/when the full guidelines
are written, this "writing error messages" topic would probably be
subsumed by the "Feedback" chapter.
