I'd say mark them as expected for now. I can help in trying to resolve
the link issues with CW but I don't have much time now. If you can give
me an easy to reproduce example of the problem, hopefully outside of the
serialization lib itself, it will make it much easier. I've had this
problem myself and in one circumstance had to manually add references to
exception classes in a dummy file+namespace to get their typeinfo linked
into my DLL.
