No there isn't. The presence of something in a TS does not imply it
has been proposed for C++17 (or any later standard). Even if it had
been proposed, it's not part of the C++17 draft, which is supposed to
IIRC the only pieces of the Library Fundamentals TS v2 proposed for
C++17 were gcd and lcm, everything else that made it into C++17 had
been in Library Fundamentals TS v1 for some time and wasn't new in v2.
Most of the new stuff in v2 needs more time to bake.
