Adding to what Sinan said;

DPC should handle the error handling and recovery similar to AER,
because finally both
are attempting recovery in some or the other way,
and for that error handling and recovery framework has to be loosely
coupled.
It achieves uniformity and transparency to the error handling agents
such as AER, DPC, with respect to recovery and error handling.

So, this patch-set tries to unify lot of things between error agents and
make them behave in a well defined way. (be it error (FATAL, NON_FATAL)
handling or recovery).

Regards,
Oza.
