You definitely don't need typename in those cases. The only reference I know
of is the standard, and I'd love to find something easier to understand.

In a nutshell, it's only dependent types that require typename. A template
parameter itself is not a dependent type. It requires a template parameter
on the left side of something with a "::" in it, for the most part.
