8.5.2 Decision Exception Handling
Any exception thrown by a batch artifact invoked during decision handling will end the job with a batch status of FAILED. This exception is visible to job-level listeners.

Isn't FAILED on exception well-specified enough without listing this as a special case?  What are we saying about the exception visible to listeners?

Leaving this alone...As it turns out FAILED on exception wasn't completely specified (Bug 5374).  But after the dust has settled, it seems useful to point out that an unhandled exception from the decider will end the job rather than triggering some other behavior in the decision transition element matching.
