The reason I didn't provide it, is that I
assumed that if the type you're constructing
is known statically, the entire set of type
bindings would be known statically.

Yes it is. You're not understanding what
this constructor does properly.
explicit any(binding<Concept>, T&& ...);
calls a type erased constructor.
The stored type is whatever the binding
says, /not/ T. constructible<...> is
required, because it is used to construct
the contained object.
