Since SmartPrt is publicly inherited from StoragePolicy you can introduce
there whatever interface you need.
Depends on your OwnershipPolicy you may or may not need to inherit from
SmartPtr. For example, if you have an intrusive reference counting you may
need to access OwnershipPolicy at the point when pointer become real.
