[std-proposals] Defect report for std::apply (or apply_perfectly)

std::apply works as follows:

    return invoke(std::forward<F>(f),

If one of the types in the tuple is an Rvalue reference, it becomes an
Lvalue. I can't imagine that this was intentional.

I have written my own function called 'apply_perfectly' which takes the
return value from 'get' and uses 'static_cast' to cast it to the type of
the tuple element, thereby achieving perfect forwarding.

So my question is as follows, which should I do?

A) Write a defect report for std::apply
B) Write a new paper for std::apply_perfectly
