I don’t think you should use sub-errors, though, because the structure doesn’t always come across well in IDEs. Rather, I’d suggest emitting one error per missing requirement, with a Fix-It that adds the proper declaration into the type/extension that declared conformance, and a note pointing to the requirement itself.
