Sometimes an exploit simply needs to make more trusted code take an exception (often after "paving" memory with known values). Since an exception can be theoretically be induced by user-mode code flipping bits in structures it doesn't own . . .

I can see "exploit resistant memory" being a selling point, maybe soon.
