The atomic classes and class templates (99 [atomics.types.integral] / 99 [atomics.types.address]) have a constexpr constructor taking a value of the appropriate type for that atomic. However, neither clause provides semantics or a definition for this constructor. I'm not sure if the initialization is implied by use of constexpr keyword (which restricts the form of a constructor) but even if that is the case, I think it is worth spelling out explicitly as the inference would be far too subtle in that case.
