Thanks. Sorry if it seems like a trivial question, but I think to some 
degree it's important that every consumer behaves to certain conditions in 
the same manner since a user is not going to know the difference between 
consumer implementation A and consumer implementation B.
They'll end up looking virtually identical from their viewpoint so they 
should have the same or at least near-identical experience when using both.

Does it make sense to have a standard list of error/informational messages 
the consumer would display to the user or would that just be going over the 
edge into over-standardization?
