I think the original intention was that an unblock request was for a
package that followed the freeze policy whereas an exception was for
packages that required, well, an exception.  Hopefully someone who was
more involved at the time will correct me if I'm mistaken.

In terms of those processing the requests for wheezy, the basic answer
is "absolutely nothing".  Indeed, there's been suggestions of dropping
the f-e tag.
