This is the exact mechanism used by the class optional<>, which is in the
Files Section, under 'class optional', and which I am currently brushing up.
optional<> semantics are a bit different, but there is nevertheless some
similarities and I'd like to consider this context as well.

I've been only scanning through this discussion so didn't got all the
details of your example: Could you post a more elaborate example, (with some
more context)?
I want to see the similarities with optional<>.
