In 30.6.6 [futures.promise]
Does promise<R>::set_value return normally if the copy/move constructor of R throws?
The exception could be caught and set using promise<R>::set_exception, or it could be allowed to leave the set_value call, but it's not clear which is intended. I suggest the exception should not be caught.
N.B. This doesn't apply to promise<R&>::set_value or promise<void>::set_value because they don't construct a new object.
