I'm not sure I understand this fully; could you please explain from what
expressions, and under what conditions, you expect the strong guarantee?

    variant<X, Y> v1, v2;
    X x;

    v1= v2; // do you expect strong guarantee here?
    v1 = std::move(v2); // here?
    v1 = x; // here?
    v1 = std::move(x); // here?
    v1.emplace<X>(); // here?
