It's not even solving a problem. That's the problem. This DIP is 
just a change that should be included in the DIP that plans to 
make nothrow default. Then it solves a problem for *that* DIP. 
*This* DIP doesn't illustrate a problem, and as such can't be a 
solution to a problem that doesn't exist (in this DIP). If the 
problem is that attributes don't have inverses, then this isn't a 
sufficient enough solution to that problem.
