Because otherwise it would have to duplicate its content.

Which probably means your compiler is wrong.

You are not suffering from a dependency, you are suffering from a compiler
bug. 'mpl::bool_<0>' or 'whatever<0>', you'd still get the same error.

Are you able to compile and link this one:

    template< bool C_ > struct bool_
        static bool const value = C_;

    template< bool C_ > bool const bool_<C_>::value;

    template< typename T > struct is_const : bool_<false> {};
    template< typename T > struct is_const<T const> : bool_<true> {};

    template< typename T, bool C_ = is_const<T>::value >
    struct something {};

    int main()
        something<int> volatile s;
        return 0;

It is, and it isn't. It has nothing to do with your problem, though.
