Simplicity, since you explicitly stated

Personally I prefer to do pointer acrobatics because I'm used to it, but if
you have to write code others have to be able to understand, list<> might
be preferable. In case the overhead of a list<> is not acceptable, the
additional space for a "generalized adaptor" might already hurt.
Anyway, I agree that a stable_container_adaptor would be a nice thing to
have. I was just curious of the "challenge".
