I'm not sure. It's possible that the format manipulators will come in
addition to the format in the facet, or in place of it (the facet will
no longer contain a format string). I can't say that I have a strong
opinion on this matter. I'm really not an I/O expert. Of course if the
chosen way is to have both, then the manipulator format overrides the
facet format.

It's doesn't matter. When you don't have access to the stream (as in
lexical_cast, don't know about program_options), you can apply neither a
facet, nor a manipulator, so there is no difference.
