I agree but for a completely different reason:

* Effective error triage needs a lot more details than a specific method
name or protocol version -- a different problem we are not trying to
solve here.

* I do not consider error handling to be a performance critical piece of
code (and yes, we have already discussed whether error handling is
performance-critical, and we disagree on that).
