Why would you consider new classes that would be based on a survey of the errnos that developers actually check for in published code to be "arbitrary"?
Since the list would be a sole opinion of some people who take part in the survey, you'll be constantly faced with demands of other people who want to have "shortcuts" for something else too.
I think you misunderstood the survey methodology. It was not a survey of developers, instead large bodies of code were examined. There is nothing arbitrary or subjective in this approach.
FWIW, am +1 on the PEP.
Same here, I'm +1 as well. The PEP is clear and solves a definite problem with a well though-out methodology.
