Discussion:

16.3.3.3.6 [customization.point.object] promises that customization point objects are semiregular and that all copies are equal, which permits copies to be freely made. In C++, making copies tends to drop cv-qualification, but there does not appear to be anything that guarantees that you can invoke these objects as non-const (or as rvalues, for that matter).

It is possible that the use of invocable<const F&, Args...> here was meant to bring in implicit expression variations, but P2102R0 has since clarified that this formulation doesn't do that.
