 You mean things like this?

void foo()
OUString a;

 Yes, even in practice, see attachment.

 But I think this one is generic enough that it should be actually preferably 
done upstream. There are already GCC/Clang attributes pure and const for 
marking functions, so there could be a similar attribute to mark ctors/dtors 
of classes where the ctor/dtor themselves do not have any side-effects (for a 
suitable definition of side-effect).
