Clarify variant construction

Proposed change: Add a note that variant<> cannot be constructed.

[2017-02-03, Marshall comments]

[variant]/3 now says "A program that instantiates the definition of variant with no template arguments is ill-formed."

[2017-02-21, Marshall comments]

It appears that the changes requested by this NB comment have already been applied — as part of P0510R0, adopted in Issaquah.

The NB comment is already marked as "accepted", so I suggest we mark the issue as "Resolved".

Proposed resolution:

Resolved by applying corresponding wording changes through P0510R0.
