I was talking about the signature, but about the way "X X::create()" was written:

X X::create()
    X x;
    return x; // passing value form static memeber-fn

The expectation that the statement "return x;" will benefit from RVO might not be justified here. Writing "return boost::move(x);" might actually be a good idea.
