This substitution happens in the dispatching layer.
In the interface of any, constructible<_a(const _a&)>
defines the constructor:

any<C, _a>::any(any<C, const _a&>);

It can't possibly define
any<C, _a>::any(const ph_value<_a>&);
because it doesn't know about ph_value<_a>.

The library deals with either any's or
with the contained types, but not both,
depending on what layer you're looking at.
You're trying to mix the two.
