When attempting to edit a post while not having enough reputation, like happened here: API to submit a Suggested Edit, the API returns the following:

  "error_id": 407,
  "error_message": "Account is not allowed to suggest edits",
  "error_name": "write_failed"

Today I was tricked into believing that it couldn't submit a suggested edit, like this case (not sure if that wording is still used).

It would be a lot clearer if the error message were changed to

Account is not allowed to make edits
