3373. {to,from}_chars_result and format_to_n_result need the "we really mean what we say" wording

Discussion:

To ensure that to_chars_result, from_chars_result, and format_to_n_result can be used in structured bindings, they need the special wording we use to negate the general library permission to add private data members and bases.

[2020-02-01 Status set to Tentatively Ready after six positive votes on the reflector.]

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4842.

  1. Add a paragraph at the end of 20.19.1 [charconv.syn] as follows:

    -?- The types to_chars_result and from_chars_result have the data members and special members specified above. They have no base classes or members other than those specified.

  2. Add a paragraph at the end of 20.20.1 [format.syn] as follows:

    -1- The class template format_to_n_result has the template parameters, data members, and special members specified above. It has no base classes or members other than those specified.
