...and then you need special cases in generic code to deal with 
noreturn. So the question is, what's the cost/benefit of adding a 
"pragmatic" special case to the language here?

In any case, the DIP has already gone through the full review 
process and been accepted, so whether we agree with it or not, 
the decision has already been made.
