The text goes on to explicitly say "But this emulation mode does not optimize the non-const rvalue move assignment example". This is what I mean by "breaking move-assignment from temporaries for the non-optimized mode".

This is what I get for failing to properly review the documentation. I
seem to remember that in previous discussions of the library,
non-optimized move emulation used an operator=(T), so that at least
rvalues were properly captured in practice. Now the terminology has
changed (at least for me :/ )
