It allows most importantly:

1. Not to mention the collection type
 As Eric pointed out - you may not know one. But even if you do writing
std::vector<mytypes<my_param> > several types for every loop I need is

2.No need to know/mention about iterator

Since you agree that looping is quite basic need - simplifying it is a
worthy task. As for the complexity it's required to support some corner
cases situation. You could always disable it with defines (that what I am
going to do).
