Interesting solution!
        try { throw; }
        catch( type1 ) { ... }

never thought about it. This is why I didn't know
how to make it generic. It makes sense now.

As for unstable states.
Does this idiom mean that any exception event handling
state must be considered as an implicit *inner* state of
any other state that throws?
So that *only* the exception handling states
can be considered as *most inner* states.

I think that one of the most important goals of
the state machines design is to achieve
a completely deterministic behavior.
Doesn't your default exception handling
idiom compromise this objective?
However as soon as you can customize
or disable the default exception handling.
I am fine with that.
