I agree the latter is a lot better. It's not entirely clear how to do this  
though. Everytime you emit a parse error per the specification it's quite  
different and currently we have the ability to make the error messages as  
accurate as possible for every situation. I'd be happy with a more  
concrete proposal on how to do this though.
