OOPS again, because a ph_ctor_arg_type *is* a suitable arg to
ph_erasee_type. Maybe the requirement should just be:

  U is same as mpl::at<Map, Tag>::type where Tag is 2nd
  template arg to the any being constructed
  and U is a model of Concept.

I think that would cover all the cases; however, it's
still worrisome that no diagnostic is provided when
U is something other than mpl::at<Map,Tag>::type.

Am I missing something?
