Boost.Core has had enable_if_has_type for this purpose for a long time.

By itself, neither void_t nor enable_if_has_type requires expression
SFINAE. It will only require one in some uses, typically involving
decltype, when you test if an expression is valid (i.e. has a type). It
works with as far as C++03 with regard to testing for nested types.
