No. this is because of return value optimization in which the temporary is
constructed directly into destination and therefore the copy ctor is not
called (hence its definition is not instantiated in your case). This is
common frontend optimization but it might be fragile assumption.

Try removing the "move-enabling" members or put the copy ctor as private to

The "move-enabling" members are only effective for the explicit move (via
move(lvalue)) so they are essential after all.
