I mean how many Qt users using that feature. ;-)

Unused memory for big chunkd is not that expensive in many cases because of overcommitment.

I believe that to. It would be nice if there would be a zero move constructor optimization too.  So if your move it sets you memory to zero so whole range would be simply memsetted. So you can simply copy that span and than memset the old area to zero. 

Building a structure which defaults to zero is not that hard in many cases.

I mean it is more functional. But for that cases you have to know the context.
