Shouldn't matter. The variant docs say:

    The bounded types of the variant are exposed via the nested
    typedef types, which is an MPL-compatible Sequence containing the
    set of types that must be handled by any visitor to the variant.

If that's not the case, it's a bug in the variant code.
