Addresses CH-18

The general approach on moving is that a library object after moving out is in a "valid but unspecified state". But this is stated at the single object specifications, which is error prone (especially if the move operations are implicit) and unnecessary duplication.

[ Resolution proposed by ballot comment ]

Consider putting a general statement to the same effect into clause 17.

[2010-11-05 Beman provides exact wording. The wording was inspired by Dave Abrahams' message c++std-lib-28958, and refined with help from Alisdair, Daniel, and Howard. ]

[2011-02-25 P/R wording superseded by N3241. ]

Proposed resolution:

Resolved by N3241
