At least in the version of the requirements I have (I haven't checked the
version in the DocVault), the Readable and Writable property accessors
are CopyConstructible. This is said in front of the table with additional
requirements. I think it is in the version I uploaded, too.
I think CopyConstructible is sufficient and I don't see any requirement
for Assignable. If people feel that CopyConstructible is not sufficient
I can extend it to Assignable. However, since I envision eg. property
accessors which just use an existing container and store a reference to
this container, assignment might not necessarily easy to achieve in all
cases (OK, instead of a reference a pointer can be stored...).
