I think generic error codes are fine if the wire protocol requirements
are documented [i.e., no duplicate topics and partitions/replicas are
either/or not both]. If I get a broker error at the protocol level
that I don't understand, the first place I look is the protocol docs.
It may cause a few more emails to the mailing lists asking for
clarification, but I think those will be easier to triage than
confused emails like "I said create topic with 10 partitions, but I
only got 5???"
