As in_place_t is a normal tag type again, we need to decay U before doing the is_same_v check.

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4618.

  1. Edit [optional.ctor] as indicated:

    template <class U = T>
      EXPLICIT constexpr optional(U&& v);


    -22- Remarks: If T's selected constructor is a constexpr constructor, this constructor shall be a constexpr constructor. This constructor shall not participate in overload resolution unless is_constructible_v<T, U&&> is true, is_same_v<decay_t<U>, in_place_t> is false, and is_same_v<optional<T>, decay_t<U>> is false. The constructor is explicit if and only if is_convertible_v<U&&, T> is false.
