Got it.
So, the reasonable and consistent value for the moved-from
variant<recursive_wrapper,int> is a moved-from recursive_wrapper, right?
In many cases, the moved-from state of the variables is equal to the
default-constructed state but this rule is not obligatory.

So, I think that NULL is a valid state of the moved-from
recursive_wrapper and the 2nd proposal is not worse (at least) than the
3rd one.
