Because it isn't. Think about it. Trivial constructors and destructors do
nothing at all. A trivial constructor leaves the object uninitialized.

But it's possible I'm constrained by my lack of imagination; show me one

Technically... if an object has a trivial copy constructor it's well defined
to use memcpy to copy it. See 3.9/3.
