Why can't const_begin be implemented as follows (for standard library

     template<typename Range>
     typename range_const_iterator<X>::type
     const_begin(Range& rng)
         return begin(static_cast<const Range&>(rng));

     template<typename Range>
     typename range_const_iterator<X>::type
     const_begin(const Range& rng)
         return begin(rng);
