I strongly disagree with this approach.

Specifications should explicitly catch and rethrow exceptions, so it's clear
where the possible exit points in an algorithm are, what exceptions they may
throw, and so overlooked exceptions at any point are strictly a bug.  If you
can't keep track of what exceptions might be thrown underneath your algorithm,
the people calling your algorithm won't be able to, either.
