Description

The question of when to use asserts vs throwing exceptions comes up frequently in the various software efforts I participate in. It would be great to have a brief description of the use cases for each provided on the art wiki that users can refer to. This information would be along the same lines of the data product design guide and guidelines for the use of pointers pages.
