Phil, you should pause and try to come up with a motivating example for the
feature you claim to want.
Once you have a motivating example, the next step would be to look at what
would be the best way to solve it. Maybe there's even a better way than
what you originally proposed as a feature!
That is, start with a problem, and then propose a solution for the problem.
If (by thinking) you end up realizing that you don't have a problem after
all, that's actually a *good* thing.

You do need to *slow down and think* about your examples. Here's your
latest one:

    template <typename T>
    struct construct
        T operator () (node_proxy &, T && t) { return T(t); } // will lose

And here's the perfectly valid C++11 code that solves your stated problem:

    template <typename T>
    struct construct
        *constexpr* T operator () (node_proxy &, T && t) { return T(t); }
// no longer loses constexpr
