It is not necessarily bad form, but if there is an existing "Class::Error" ecosystem you might consider asking the author first in case they wanted to use that sub-namespace. That does not really seem to be the case here.

I'd say that you should ask no matter what, and should also consider using something like Foobar::Error instead. Partly to avoid trampling on someone else's namespace, but also because using C::E::Foobar might give your users some incorrect expectations if they are already using Class::Error elsewhere.
