No, but clearly *some* exceptions are documented, and presumably there's some reasoning behind which are and aren't.

In this case, the NotImplemented error is there by design. It's not an incidental effect of something else. It's part of the API, and it's used to indicate a common error condition: that the compression format is not supported.
