My mistake. I didn't notice:


  Concept must contain a matching instance of constructible.

However, in my defense, I couldn't see any reason why,

   any<Concept,_a> a_any

can be created with static_map<Concept>, it couldn't be
created with a binding<Concept>; thus, I guess I just
glossed over the any.html#id2445089-bb doc.

BTW what *is* the reason for the restriction on the Concept in the
binding<Concept> CTOR. It's obviously not needed for creating
an instance of AnyA with a value<_a>::type even when ConceptAB does
not "contain a matching instance of constructible".

None, now that I've read the doc's more closely.
Thanks for pointing me to which doc to read.
