Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The reason bondholders are exempt is that senior bondholders represent such a small amount (0.5 bn) so "burning" them would have brought little money and (another) worrying precedent. Given the amount, that seems like a plausible argument, even if the overall package makes it an appallingly bad-looking one.
