3261. regex components' noexcept annotations appear broken for POCMA or throwing BidirectionalIterator

std::basic_regex and std::match_results have noexcept move construction, and std::basic_regex has noexcept move assignment, but both of them have throwing swaps. We probably need an Expects: or something to say that BidirectionalIterator doesn't throw through these operations. We probably also need match_results::operator= to respect propagate_on_container_move_assignment (and maybe the copy ctor respect propagate_on_container_copy_assignment).

The issue is related to LWG 2490.
