Documentation > Foundation > Errors and Exceptions <> should provide motivation or explanation of what customizing of error bridging means to a Swift application developer. Alternatively, an article in that section of the documentation or a chapter in the "Using Swift with Cocoa and Objective-C" book would be nice. <> remains the most comprehensive reference for this feature, which is undesirable. I have now at least 3 times encountered a teammate trying to build this feature on their own because they didn't know the standard one existed. This lack of awareness in the community reduces the quality of error-handling by third-party applications on Apple platforms.
