PHP5 is required in recent versions of WordPress, so I would agree that WP_Error should use exceptions. I would urge you to submit a patch to Trac.

Did someone post some stats recently about what versions of PHP in use by WP sites?
I completely agree that exceptions would be better, but presumably, that has to wait until so few people are still on PHP4 that we can make PHP5+ a requirement.
