FWIW, unless the latest working paper specifies this assignment
operator I would expect there to be other viable techniques to
accomplish the same effect, such as defining our own template,
say, __rw_assign_tuple_elem(), to do the assignment, and
providing a no-op const __rw_ignore& overload.

I'm not suggesting we make use of this technique, just pointing
out that there likely are a number of other solutions that don't
require making std::ignore non-const.
