We can certainly do this. I also appreciate if an exception name already describes the problem. But I also must caution against using too long names. Especially for classes with inner classes. Such Classes result in very long class-filenames. Some Systems have hard limits on these names.
Something like: Collections$UnmodifiableMap$UnmodifiableEntrySet$1$1.class
will not work on a QNX system with a limit of 48 chars in a filename.

On such system, you should simply put the classes in a .jar file. Th think that we should not limit the readability an intuitiveness of the source code for such system-specific problem.
