Any object of type expected<T, E> either represents a value of type T, or contains a value of type E within its own storage.
Implementations are not permitted to use additional storage, such as dynamic memory, to allocate the object of type E.
Member has_­val indicates whether the expected<T, E> object represents a value of type T.
A program that instantiates the definition of the template expected<T, E> with a type for the E parameter that is not a valid template argument for unexpected is ill-formed.
E shall meet the requirements of Cpp17Destructible (Table 36).
