I'm happy with that interpretation. If that was codified in a style document accessible to newbies I think that would help achieve a more consistent approach to exceptions.

Yet something dark and hideous inside me tells me except-log loops will continue to be pervasive and bugs will continue to be ignored in a large number of Python programs.
