This is true. It stems from an assumption that people likely to use
Outcome already understand error coding enums, and need to be made more
aware of how to speak `error_code` using their existing error coding enums.

Ok, I'll clarify that any EC type can be used on your [1].

I'll clarify this as well.

Thanks for the feedback.
