The exception list is restricted in its functionality to avoid the
privacy problems caused by exception entries. Mixing the two means that
both list types would need to be restricted as described.

Also, having unbounded except lists makes processing more complicated
since the simple row model no longer applies (it's no longer a
relational table).

I agree; I'm just trying to find the least harmful set of possible
solutions. Mixing two models is by far, in my opinion, the worst option.
