You embarrass me. I think the page is ok as long as you don't say
"during" stack unwinding; also I would prefer "could exit via an
exception" rather than "could throw". More-or-less:
"Don't embed a std::string object or any other data member or base
class whose copy constructor could exit via an exception. That could
lead you straight from the point of throw to std::terminate()"
Maybe you can also add an exclamation point as a pinch of sound
