I would like to ask that the term User Granted Exception be changed to User
Granted Permission. The term “exception” is currently in widespread use in
computer programming especially in Java, C/C++/C# and JavaScript as a term
for a type of control structure for program flow. This term will cause
confusion amongst implementers who will probably defer to the less confusing
but ugly UGE epithet. 

User Granted Permission is easier for users to understand and less annoying
for developers. It can be shortened to Permission and the meaning is still
clear. It also aligns well with other terms in the document like Permitted
