Ok, I'm definitely confused. I guess I don't understand how to
reconsile "Containers are not part of stl" with "There are rules in
the standard [for containers?] because the containers have to have
requirements.". It seems like the latter implies they are part of
STL. Or maybe there's some precise definition to "are part of STL"
that I'm not getting.

The SGI STL web pages seem to imply that a list is a reversible
container which is a forward containe which is a forward container.
Are they introducing additional concepts that are not in the standard
without mentioning that?
