If I write:

A& h(A& a) {
  return a;

A&& h(A&& a) {
  return std::move(a);

int main() {
  A a, b;

  b = std::move(h(a));
  b = std::move(h(std::move(a)));

  return EXIT_SUCCESS;

Then if A only has copy assignment, that will be used, but if has that and move 
assignment or only move assignment, then move assignment will be used. No 
copying occurs with copy elision. Isn't that what you want?
