Section 3.2 talks about what status and exceptions should be thrown if
there is a problem dealing with primitives or ParamConverters.

"Other exceptions thrown during construction of field or property values
  *using 3 or 4 above* are treated as client errors: "

It goes on to state which exceptions to throw. Now, I think "using 3 or
4 above" should probably be removed from the spec. So that parsing
primitives and param converters are consistent with valueOf and Constructor.
