Hmm. You have a point.
The main reason for creating something like this would be to allow
registration of the dinkumware iterators, which are defined as nested
classes (unlike the iterators of other stl-implementations which are
normal template classes already supported by the TYPEOF library)
BOOST_TYPEOF_REGISTER_TEMPLATE_NESTED should only be used in this
context, and not promoted outside of the TYPEOF library.
This functionality could also be implemented in the same scope as the
stl registration code. This would prevent the TYPEOF library from
being polluted, but would allow automatic registration of iterators
for all platforms.
