I think the advice should stay as-is.  In my experience as a teacher, the possibility doesn't usually occur to people without it having been suggested.  Also, it mirrors practices in the standard library (decimal.DecimalException and sqlite3.DatabaseError).  For users, it provides a way to catch possible errors that are specific to a particular module.
