    I'm not sure about traits. The reason I included a default parameter is
to make it easier to use with associative containers. For instance

struct CaseInsensitiveLess {
          bool operator()(const string &lhs, const string &rhs);

std::set<string, exchange_parameters_t<CaseInsensitiveLess> > ciSet;

In order for this code to compile, exchange_parameters_t needs to have a
default constructor.
