Instead of using String.Format for the calls that will throw a
user-visible error, use Locale.GetText (it takes the same arguments).
When we do localization, this will reduce the work we do at that time.

In general, I do not like Enum.IsDefined because it boxes the value on
every call.  I would rather compare to upper/lower ranges which is
faster (and besides, in Mono, we are guilty of not really doing Enum
parameter checks in a number of places, which one day we might want to

If this was a common pattern, I wonder if it would be worth having the
compiler inline Enum.IsDefined to avoid the boxing?   Worth considering.
