I don't think so. That is the only safe way to use an output
iterator; however, it does not apply to input iterator. Example: wc -w

cout << distance(istream_iterator<string>(cin),
                 istream_iterator<string>()) << endl;

I see misconcept checking as a real problem. It has been reported that
the stl_port rejects lower_bound when the target type does not match
the iterator value_type. In spite of the fact that the compare object
supports target type, value_type in either order.
