I don't think it is so. std::string and a stream class are containers of elements. How they
contain them is their own beer. They exchange them for example via operators << and >> where it is
defined how the strings are serialized or deserialized to the stream. In these operators you
provide as template params Elems stored in stream and traits about these Elems. And the rest is
how you handle it.
