No, it's not worth fleshing out. It is impossible for implementations to
provide. But investigating it further will likely teach you a lot of corner
cases about C++!

Look up "function try blocks."

Also, consider how you'd deal with

    void foo() /*{*/ noexcept(true); /*}*/


    struct S {
        void bar() const /*{*/ int dummy = 42; /*}*/
