I would have assumed that should be UB.  But that arguably could depend 
on whether and how that DR about calling noexpect functions through 
non-noexcept pointers that both you and I reported will be resolved. 
(It's a bit unfortunate that no information about those DR filings is 
yet available at 

One more argument in favour of resolving this issue as per 
<https://reviews.llvm.org/D40720#958730> for now.  So I'll look into that.
