Addresses GB-72

Dynamic exception specifications are deprecated, so clause 18.8.2 that describes library support for this facility should move to Annex D, with the exception of the bad_exception class which is retained to indicate other failures in the exception dispatch mechanism (e.g. calling current_exception()).

[ Resolved in Rapperswil by a motion to directly apply the words from the ballot comment in N3102. ]

Proposed resolution:

With the exception of 18.8.2.1 [bad.exception], move clause 18.8.2 directly to Annex D. [bad.exception] should simply become the new 18.8.2.
