I'm not sure that's always the case
The idea that bugs be excepted because they won't get fixed may be
self-fulfilling - the exceptions remove visibility to the problems. Do
we need a "...but excepted bugs were encountered" issue summary?
I've also wondered about the mechanism for backing out the exceptions
should the core issues be fixed. Perhaps via a means for determining
that the exception no longer appears in the 'exception' issue report.
