Thanks for the clarification.

However, that seems to involve a lot of checking because you'd have
to check possibly all the bounded types to find one that
is nothrow-default-constructible. Wouldn't it be simpler
to define variant to have, implicitly, a nothrow-default-constructible
type something like the special_type<nothing_id> I mentioned
in my previous post or like the boost::blank which Andrey just
mentioned in his post?
