I believe that the "exception" means that the courier has been instructed by Apple to hold the shipment so it's delivered on the release date of March 16th.
My listing looks like this:I know, thats why I'm curious if anyone doesn't have an exception, and there iPad slipped through the system.
Just out of curiosity, what are the specs of your ipad, and did you have it engraved? I'm wondering why yours was shipped from China and not the US since they have been stockpiling them in the US for launch for a few weeks now.My listing looks like this:

I don't see the word "exception" anywhere on the tracking info page. But the package does appear to be sitting in Louisville. I don't know it it will stay there or move to Columbus or Cleveland and then sit there till Thursday before it proceeds to the local depot.
