Considering all the possible modes that can use next-error, I feel
that users would appreciate some control over the process of choosing
the next-error buffer.

With that in mind, why not make the default behavior a list of symbols
as Juri and I suggested, with a sensible default as you suggest?  Here
are the advantages:

1) the user does not have to know how the default behavior works,
   they just use it

2) we can change the default behavior with a change of customize
   defaults, not a change of logic

3) the user can, if he chooses, override the defaults easily through
   the customization facilities
