I was looking at SQL:2011.  My concern in naming them that way was that
I wanted to have errcodes that would be general enough for any tablesample
extension to use, but still be tablesample-specific, ie I don't want them
to have to fall back on say ERRCODE_INVALID_PARAMETER_VALUE.

Is your concern that we shouldn't be extending the meaning of these
standard SQLSTATE numbers in that way, or that I didn't slavishly follow
the standard's wording while naming the macros, or what exactly?

It's certainly not too late to change this, but we need to agree on
what would be better.
