Chris Jerdonek added the comment:

To state more explicitly the observation I alluded to in my comment above, we 
currently follow (without exception -- pun intended :) ) the convention that 
subclasses of exceptions that end in "Error" also end in "Error".  We also do 
the same with the suffix "Warning".

The latter is another reason to include the suffix "Error" -- to eliminate 
ambiguity as to whether the exception type inherits from a Warning class (e.g. 
from ImportWarning).
