I'm still very sceptic how you'd reliably separate the issues into test/environment/product issues and what "SQE avoiding spending any dev time" means?
Again, I'd love to see some examples of why this would be a worthwhile addition.

We already have more than 2k statements like "throw new testbug" in hotspot/test.
I think it indicates that we need a separate error for test bug/environment issue. It will allow us to identify test/env issues easily and assign them directly to SQE avoiding spending any dev time.
I created a sub-task on new Asserts framework here -
We are really appreciate your comments.
