I think it is important that the programming guideline addresses
concept design, not class design: It is rather useful to allow adaption
of existing classes to concepts without having to change the class.
This makes it possible to use built-in types as the realization of a
concept. Pointers realizing the iterator concept are just one example.
An atomic integer realized with some built-in integer is another. Of
course, the functions might just forward the request to a member. What
is important is the possibility of simple adaption.
