template< class T                  (1) (since C++11)
struct is_move_assignable;
template< class T                  (2) (since C++11)

1) If T is not a referenceable type (i.e., possibly cv-qualified void or a function
type with a cv-qualifier-seq or a ref-qualifier), provides a member constant value
equal to false. Otherwise, provides a member constant value equal to
std::is_assignable<T&, T&&>::value.
2) Same as 1), but uses std::is_trivially_assignable<T&, T&&>
3) Same as 1), but uses std::is_nothrow_assignable<T&, T&&>

T shall be a complete type, (possibly cv-qualified) void, or an array of unknown
bound. Otherwise, the behavior is undefined.

If an instantiation of a template above depends, directly or indirectly, on an
incomplete type, and that instantiation could yield a different result if that type
were hypothetically completed, the behavior is undefined.

                            typename std::add_rvalue_reference<T>::type> {};


The trait std::is_move_assignable is less strict than MoveAssignable because it does
not check the type of the result of the assignment (which, for a MoveAssignable
type, must be T&), nor the semantic requirement that the target's value after the
assignment is equivalent to the source's value before the assignment.

The type does not have to implement a move assignment operator in order to satisfy
this trait; see MoveAssignable for details.
