Could the user not specify std::exception& instead?

It is not. Not, at least, unless you want the user to specify each
/concrete/ exception type that may be thrown. If, for example, the user
specifies std::exception, you can't even store one because it's an abstract
base class. Worse, non-abstract base classes will be subject to silent
