Did some testing, yeah, you're right, though the original test cases presented
by Daniel didn't cause them to show up in VS2012 or GCC 4.7.2.

Additional test cases:

T a, b, c, d;

T r4 = a + b + c + d; // extra temporary created for + d if no return rvalue

r4 = a + b + c; // extra temporary created for assignment operator if no
return rvalue ref
