Not really. You would still test the facilities when exceptions are
enabled. OTOH, I don't see why would anyone care about these components
when exceptions are disabled.

If it works, that would be fine by me. I don't disable exceptions and I
don't know whether the standard library components related to exceptions
stay available when exceptions are disabled. I wouldn't be surprised if
they don't (now or in a future version of the standard library
implementation). In any case, as I said, I don't see anyone using these
components when exceptions are disabled, so not much point in testing.
