It should copy the contents. Thomas?

That is true. phoenix::value is not default constructible. While it is
easy to make it so, I'm not sure it is a good idea as it will potentially
break existing code which holds values that are not default constructible.
I'd argue that phoenix3 should follow.
OTOH, I think a good compromise is to allow default construction on primitive
types and POD structs. That will solve your problem. I can do that now with
