        MalformedTreeException - is thrown if the edit tree isn't in a valid state. This exception is thrown before any edit is executed. So the document is still in its original state.
        BadLocationException - is thrown if one of the edits in the tree can't be executed. The state of the document is undefined if this exception is thrown.
