Does it happen all the time or in some select cases? E.g. if binding a
reference to an integer literal doesn't work but everything else does
it's not a big deal since this rarely happens.

I'm kind of worried by disabling the feature outright. If I'm writing
portable code which uses optional<T&> and compiles with gcc, I would
expect it to compile with MSVC as well.
