Both are are definitely longer strings of text. However, the use case is such 
that for form elements that have description about what the purpose is of the 
form element and which are also marked  as aria-invalid=“true” you then need to 
find an error message which is different. 

Forms often have multiple invalid elements and thus multiple error messages. 
These error messages are often live regions as well, and must be visible to be 
mapped as you would need to navigate to them given that they may have links to 
information help the user in determining how to read them.
