Where is the laziness here? The user sees test<> (an alias), is_evaluable<>
(an alias), and the static asserts don't refer to anything else.

If I add another metafunction (in my sense, i.e. a template alias)

template<class T> using test2 = test<std::decay_t<T>>;

that has no lazy test2_c backend, is_evaluable still works for it:

static_assert(is_evaluable<test2, void const volatile>::value, "");
static_assert(!is_evaluable<test2, int()>::value, "");
static_assert(!is_evaluable<test2, void, int>::value, "");
