No. A policy-base smart pointer is OK and a suitable template on its own

(I can't say whether Loki's smart pointer is the right thing but it
possibly is). However, together with the introduction of a policy-based
smart pointer a template taking one argument shall also be introduced
and advertised as *the* smart pointer to be used in interfaces. This
latter template is probably implemented in terms of the policy-based
smart pointer although this is not a required.
