That would be inconsistent with STL stream behavior.
If you want an exception to be thrown, set the steam's exceptions().
Then, when any client code sets the stream's fail bit, automatically an
exception will be thrown.

// if an error happens, an exception will be thrown.
std::cin >> io::formatob(...);

Quite true! That would make it clearer: container_fmt, pair_frmt,
So, I second this ;)
