I like the idea, but don't think the implementation is the right way to do it. Instead, I'd suggest using a new error handling strategy "break" ( = break processing as soon as errors are found).
Can you demonstrate this approach in a patch? I think it is unimplementable: the codec cannot communicate to the error callback that it ran out of data.
We would need a special attribute in the exception for that, but the problem IMHO is a different one. This makes it impossible to use other error handling schemes than "break" in stateful decoders.
