> Sending an ERR isn't appropriate because the earlier ANS message
> implies there is no protocol error. There is symmetry after all,
> since ERR always indicates a protocol error, and exceptions are
> always indicated with variants of RPY and ANS messages, depending on
> whether the interaction is 1:1 or 1:N.
> Perhaps it would be helpful to make this point clear in the
> appropriate draft? It would be a real shame if protocol developers
> missed this point and abused the ERR message by using it to report
> exception conditions rather than protocol errors.
