The freedom referenced in footnote 189 was curtailed in C++11 to allow only non-throwing specifications. The footnote is both wrong, and unnecessary.
Strike footnote 189.

The referenced footnote had the following content in the ballot document N4604:
That is, an implementation may provide an explicit exception-specification that defines the subset of "any" exceptions thrown by that function. This implies that the implementation may list implementation-defined types in such an exception-specification.
In N4618 this footnote has already been removed, I therefore suggest to resolve the issue as "Resolved by editorial change".

Just to confirm that issue 2867 was filed when it looked like the paper to remove exception specifications from the language had missed C++17. The very specific edit requested by the issue can be found in the paper P0003R5 that was applied.I suggest we mark as resolved by the above paper, rather than "resolved editorially".
Resolved by accepting P0003R5.
