If we have two exceptions A and B, such that B is the cause of A, then A is the wrapping exception (the one that wraps or the wrapper) and B is the wrapped exception (the one that is being wrapped or the wrappee).

I noticed that the sentence was conflicting: it started with the "wrapped" exception, but then in the "i.e." commentary in parentheses proceeded with the wrappee exception. To resolve that conflict, I proposed to rephrase the first part of that sentence. FWIW, my original suggestion elsewhere was to use "wrapper".
