I am unsure what "exceptional access" means.
Is it access by exceptional people, eg the NSA can read everything, or
access in exceptional circumstances, eg the UK's Cameron's "with a
warrant signed personally by the Home Secretary"?
Of course to a cryptographer these are much the same thing, but
politically they seem to be different.
