Yes, but decreases the users capabilities catching exceptions more
precise and flexible.
Imagine, a method would throw an IndexOutOfBoundsException for some
reason and too calls Character.toChars(). The caller of such a method
could distinguish, where the exception would come from, and have
separate catch blocks. But if not documented ... :-(
In extreme, following too would not be a bug in your sense:
I became sensitive on this, as I have seen real bugs in
AbstractStringBuilder vice versa, where methods actually throw
IndexOutOfBoundsExceptions, but their javadoc states StringIndexOutOf
Would be a nice game for easter, inviting people to search for those
bugs in JDK code base, than for coloured eggs.
