Unnecessary clause in std::variant

In the Standard's description of std::variant, there is this line:

"A program that instantiates the definition of variant with no template
arguments is ill-formed."

A bit later, regarding the variant(T&&) constructor, there is this:
"Remarks: This function shall not participate in overload resolution unless
- sizeof...(Types) is nonzero,"

Is this a redundant statement? "Types" is std::variant's parameter pack,
so sizeof...(Types) == 0 would've already been ill-formed, not simply a
failed overload.

Looks like an editorial issue to file, but I wanted to ask people here
