if a pipe was not constructed as a named pipe and is converted to an

It is widely considered to be bad practice to throw on programmer errors.
It sounds like you should be asserting on invalid async_pipe conversions,
since the precondition for doing so has not been met. Throwing is for
conditions that could not have been fixed at the time the user wrote the
code (like a failed parse of something read off a wire, for instance).
