3400. Does is_nothrow_convertible consider destruction of the destination type?

This issue was submitted after a previous editorial change request had been rejected by the project editors.

I find that all known implementations (at least msvcstl, libc++, libstdc++ and the sample in P0758R1) of std::is_nothrow_convertible may be not clear enough to indicate that whether destruction of the destination type is considered (or not).

For example, given a type Weird defined as

struct Weird 
  Weird(int) noexcept {}
  ~Weird() noexcept(false) {}

Then std::is_nothrow_convertible_v<int, Weird> is false in every known implementation. However, it seems that the conversion itself is noexcept.

This seems to be quite related to the existing issue LWG 2116.
