I have a small objection. Or maybe not-so-small.
Assertions are for precondition violations -- they detect programming
errors. Exceptions are for failure to satisfy postconditions. They're
really very different.
If we are going to group these things under a single category, I'd like
it if the name were more clear about its scope. I have several ideas
but none is definitively better...
