This distinction is probably only interesting for the case that the deregister method fails with an error/exception but it's not clear if the driver is still registered in that case. For completeness then the spec should probably say that any error/runtime exception is propagated to the caller of deregisterDriver.

Thanks, I think that covers all the corner cases.

One typo, line 376, should be "If the specified ...".
