Provide an additional addError method on SObject that accepts a field name

Salesforce Platform, Apex & Visualforce

I have just run into the same difficulty described here:

I want to apply the same logic to many fields of many objects and so do not want to reference all the fields at compile time either. If there are design problems exposing a field object then something like this:

    SObject sob = ...;
    sob.addError('fieldName', 'errorMessage');

would be sufficient.
