Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > How are you parsing the appropriate error to unset? If the "key" is the
 same, are you matching on the (translatable) strings?

 Yes, I have matched the strings in the past. It's very fragile, so I'm not
 super super worried about breaking it.

 > I think someone would first need to put together a table of how non-MS
 and MS handle all the edge cases, so we can figure out what we want to do

 Yes, this would be helpful, as we'll have to assess what effect they'll
 have on BP functionality. But my general preference would be for BP to do
 as little validation in this area as possible - we should not be in the
 business of adding extra restrictions to `user_login`.
