I think CORBA predates even original STL.
In STL meaning of pointer and reference is...

typedef foo & foo_reference;
typedef foo * foo_pointer;

*ptr <==> ref
ptr->x() <==> ref.x()

So you would not expect a pointer to have any
members other than those for managing the pointer.

Plus a reference should never be null.

See my other post on how to make both pointers and references.
