It does throw.  The constructors are guaranteed to either return a 
non-null reference or throw an exception (the default constructors all 
throw com.sun.star.uno.DeploymentException, which is derived from 
RuntimeException; explicit constructors can in principle also throw 
other exceptions).

So you'd probably also come across code like

   Reference<X> x(...createInstance...);
   if (x.is()) { ... }

that you can simplify by using a constructor and removing the x.is() check.
