Indeed, I wanted to explain the differences between *o=v and o=v (and the reason why 'direct'
assignment exist in the first place) but was too busy. I'm a bit too busy still but: if lhs is
initialized, both version should do the same, thus, direct assignment must use true reference
semantic. But, if lhs is uninitialized, we must do _something_, and as I originally suggested, I
think it should bind (not re-bind since it was never bound) the reference.
