Fourth reason, just over 24 hours since the first:

https://codereview.qt-project.org/197638 requires a constexpr constructor to 
avoid introducing a load-time initialisation. Guess which compiler doesn't 
support the feature?

I'm going to give Allan +2 even if it causes detrimental side effects for MSVC 
2013. Sorry, I can't seem to care anymore for old compilers.
