I don't see how the unified class would address this issue. We still need a
proxy for the reference type, and therefore it still would not meet the
container requirements, which is part of my reason for not including the
container functions in dyn_bitset.

Right, and I don't think it should be an STL container. It's an entirely
different beast.
