The constructor from a range:
template<class InputIterator> basic_string(InputIterator begin, InputIterator end, const Allocator& a = Allocator());
lacks a throws clause. However, I would expect that it throws according to the other constructors if the numbers of characters in the range equals npos (or exceeds max_size(), see above).
In 188.8.131.52 [string.require], Strike throws paragraphs for constructors which say "Throws: length_error if n == npos."
Throws clauses for length_error if n == npos are no longer needed because they are subsumed by the general wording added by the resolution for issue 83.
