It kinda does: generic programming.
Say if I want to do critical math and create a numeric class that
throws on inaccuracies. Then I cannot use libraries that "forgot"
to add "throws" because whenever I provide a lambda that use
critical math those libraries will refuse to take them.
Attributes like "nothrow" should be for public APIs. For most
code is better to do this using semantic analysis.
