I think that we have discussed this and other similar attributes before and
concluded that the wording needed to be that the error for a bad syntax type
was "client-error-bad-request" and thus different from the error for a
value with the correct syntax type but too long The error for the second
case is 'client-error-request-value-too-long'.
