Thanks Jim but those exceptions are for EXIT ACCESS STAIRWAYS and the discussion is related to required exit stairs which are called INTERIOR EXIT STAIRWAYS (IES).  I have no idea why they named these two types of stairs so poorly but that is what we have to work with.   I did end up finding CBC 1027.1 exception 1 which allows an IES to exit into something other than an Exit Passageway.
