That's the obvious way done by everyone at first, even me. I also saw it in the GCC LibStdC++v3 source for std::is_nothrow_default_constructible. However, every operation required for a noexcept expression is considered, including any destructor calls for temporary objects. That's why there's a "declval," after all. We need to call a constructor without a corresponding destructor, and the placement-new syntax (in a no-throw version) does that. The variant used is one of the few that's illegal to override.
