I don't see anything wrong with that. I'm not sure how useful it is, as it
only makes a real semantic difference when you want the implicitly declared
move constructor and move assignment operator but no copying, which I'm
guessing is rare (but I really don't have enough experience with r-value
references to say more than that).
