I think you should transform your errors according to your level of abstraction as much as you do with your values.

That's a good goal.
Also using inclusion (by tagging an error subset) rather than union for errors reported by subsystems allows you to work with a constant set of variants at a given abstraction level which lessens the problems.

I've tried that, and only problem was I ended up with rather big types. Appropriate naming could get around that, at least in the mli's. Crazy types might still get printed out by utop, but that doesn't bother me too much.
