Dear Jakub,

I think that this is a good point, but I am unsure if we have the capacity to
fix it before releasing version 1.0 of the format.  I definitely would not

I looked at how my favorite parser, config-edit, is doing with exceptions, and
if I add a ‘OpenSSL and Font’ or an ‘OpenSSL, Font’ exception, it stops with
error at loading…

If other people would like this point addressed before DEP 5 is finalised, it
is time to participate.

Have a nice day,
