I can sympathise with that preference. It really is a lost cause,
though; the English language just works that way.
We use nouns as verbs, nouns as modifiers, adjectives as nouns; and
rather than wish it were not so, we must to take care to express
ourselves to avoid unintended ambiguity — especially in writing. And
*especially* in writing terse formal error messages.
The English language is imperfect, but it's what we have. Live with it.
