This is something where we have never been consistent. I did a quick
search through the jdk repository and see 246 places where Error is
thrown, 410 where InternalError is thrown, and 278 where AssertionError
is thrown. Most of these are "should not here here" sites and so the
error will never be thrown. Definitely wroth a bit clean-up some day.
For now, I think I'll push Rémi as is, if for no reason other than
File.toURI also throws Error.
