The only convention I can see is that subclass values not defined by the
SQL specification begin with 'P'. (This ought to be documented; barring
any objections, I'll commit a patch stating this in errcodes.h
explicitly). Beyond that I don't know of any other conventions.

Why would you want to do that?

What's the value in keeping these the same? (If a client is already
looking for a specific error code, it doesn't seem too onerous for them
to need to look for two.)
