If a non-empty-capable type gets into a state where it can't be anything
but empty, then a std::terminate seems justified. Otherwise I'm dubious
-- if you're explicitly using an empty-capable type, then is empty
really a serious error any more?
But then, as I've said before, I'm biased against std::terminate in
general, so perhaps I'm not the best one to ask.
