Yes, the forwarding call wrapper returned from `std::bind` is movable.
That doesn't change the fact that:

- Using `bind` in the implementation provides different semantics than
those required by the standard.

- Using `bind` either in the implementation or in the user code means
that arguments are not forwarded, thus movable-only types cannot be used
with a target callable taking them by value, and using copyable types
results in unnecessary copies.
