Yes, I agree. To expand on that, the requirements defined by the standard
library such as CopyConstructible, LessThanComparable, and so on, do not
have preconditions. So if a movable type claims to conform to these
requirements, it can't impose a precondition that the operations only work
on values that haven't been moved from. And the same holds for requirements
defined by libraries other than the standard library.
