I'm OK with trying it this way. We can always have another
<strike>bikeshed</strike> fruitful discussion if it turns out to be a
frequent cause of confusion in practice.

Not sure one name is any more clear than the other. PixelOnlyFailure seems
fine to me since others have expressed a preference in the past for Pixel
over Image.

We already have a mechanism for "errors" like this. They are reported when
you run the tests or when you run with --lint-test-files. At least on the
chromium bots, this runs as a separate step that turns red when when you
cause a lint failure. That way errors get noticed and addressed quickly
(the lint step takes ~2 seconds to run).
