It's true that WTFMove or std::move doesn't do anything if the moved
variable is not used because WTFMove / std::move is just a type cast.

However, that behavior is orthogonal from the issue that calling WTFMove /
std::move on std::optional, and the returned value is assigned to another
std::optional, the original std::optional will be left a bad state.

I completely disagree with your assessment that this calls for the use of
std::exchange.
