In an elemental function  does throwing an error, count as a side effect?

For instance

V2 = new Array(10, function(){return 23} ,14)

V1 = ParallelArray(14,12,10) function(e,i)  { var temp = array[e-12] = v2[i].toFixed() ; ...  })

Since the toFixed will  throw a type error when i =1, and a range error when e = 10

If this is a side effect, then it is not an elemental function and should throw Error, not typeError or rangeError
