That's an interesting question. The current implementation in your code is
consistent with java.lang.ClassNotFoundException. I'm curious as to why they
disallowed initCause to be called even if they were created using the
constructors without Throwables. Any idea? Was this discussed in the other lists?

Just a couple of minor comments on the test:

- the copyright date should only include 2011
- some minor typos (line number in []):

[26] s/in/is
[43] s/validating/validate
[98] s/checkImutable/checkImmutable
