I thought about writing a paper on the semantics of exception handling, but decided against
it. However my research did find some references. To me the most useful for J3 would be Herb 
Sutter’s paper for SC22/WG21, "Zero-overhead deterministic exceptions: Throwing values”, 
http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2018/p0709r0.pdf an an alternative C++ 
exception handling scheme that he hopes would have much lower overhead than  the current C++ 
scheme. FWIW this paper has an extensive reference list that includes other papers/blogs that 
I also found interesting.
