That wasn't actually my argument. The main advantage that I saw was

     template <typename Vector, typename T> struct encode;


     template <typename T> struct encode;

The possible advantage is that compilers can reuse more instantiations
of encode. It might also simplify this heavily specialised template.

Unfortunately, this is all speculation. I haven't done anything to back
it up. Since I can't use the more recent versions of Visual C++, I can't
even test on that compiler.
