apache provides localized error messages for error codes. You can translate
them and add some bullshit to them to be over 512 bytes big.

But since it's the web browser, who eats those messages and shows user own
versions, who can tell when will microsoft come with bigger limit for error
messages?

My point is, you can (and apparently do) give useful error messages, but you
can't to much for clients' browsers not to sabotage it.
