But the current way that these things are being handled by hardening mechanisms is that the application is terminated (or a thread is terminated) on a bad memory access. That leaves sites vulnerable to denial-of-service attacks.
Certainly it's possible to augment the approach by adding logging, so the fact that an error occurred can be recorded.
