There were previous objections about using `non_null` within libc++ due to the affect on code gen. That's why I choose to use diagose_if here.
However the previous objections weren't about `std::string`, so maybe the consensus would be different here? I'll ping @mclow.lists about this.

Note: Some of these non-null diagnostics depend on the second condition `size > 0`, which can't be done with non-null.
