Unnecessary information for users

There are (or should be) two things at play here:
  1. The backtrace will only be shown if you're an admin or have debug enabled.
  2. That isn't normally how that type of exception is triggered. We have seen this with some old versions of PHP, with certain combinations of PHP extensions. I haven't seen it for a while, but I believe it may be down to opcode caching with optimization?

So, it turns out that users do not receive notification of the mandatory tag. It misleads them.

The exception should not be occurring in the first place. Users are notified about missing fields through a different mechanism.
