2010. exception-specifications and conversion operators

Section: 14.5  [except.spec]     Status: CD4     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2014-09-26

[Adopted at the October, 2015 meeting as P0012R1.]

It is not possible to provide an exception-specification for a conversion-type-id, which prevents the result from being used in assignment or initialization of a function pointer with a non-throwing exception-specification. This seems unnecessarily restrictive.
