Default Simple dimmer error reporting

I am in the middle of making a simple RDM device which is composed of a conventional lamp integrated with a dimmer. There is a crude current sensing mechanism. It is only intened to determine whether the lamp is good or not. I don't care whether the wattage is 200W or 300W, etc.; just is it there or not.

When reporting the status of the fixture/dimmer, are there any suggestions as to what status message would be most appropriate? The closest entries in the Standard are STS_BREAKER_TRIPPED, STS_WATTS, and STS_DIM_FAILURE. None of these is really a correct description of the error state. Any ideas or experience from others?
