+Add new clause:
+  6.5.1 Pragma No_Return
+  A pragma No_Return indicates that a procedure never returns normally;
+  it always propagates an exception.
+                     Syntax
+    The form of a pragma No_Return, which is a program unit pragma (see 10.1.5)
+    is as follows:
+      pragma No_Return(local_name {, local_name});
+                     Legality Rules
+  The pragma shall apply to one or more procedures or generic procedures.
+  If a pragma No_Return applies to a procedure or a generic procedure, there
+  shall be no return_statements within the procedure.
+                     Dynamic Semantics
+  If a pragma No_Return appies to a procedure, then the exception Program_Error
+  is raised at the point of the call of the procedure if the procedure body
+  completes normally rather than propagating an exception.
+Add after 11.4.1(4):
+      pragma No_Return(Raise_Exception);
+Modify 11.4.1(14) as follows:
+  [Raise_Exception and] Reraise_Occurrence [have] {has} no effect in the case
+  of [Null_Id or] Null_Occurrence.  {Raise_Exception,} Exception_Message, ...
