Hmm, I'm not convinced of that.

  some_container tmp(to_upper_view(rng));

would return something different than


in languages which do not have a homomorphous characterwise mapping
between lowercase and uppercase spelling (e.g. german: ß -> SS, but S
-> s). For the same reason, a locale-aware to_upper_view would not be as
trivial as one would think at first. (Not overly complex, either, probably).

The collapsing views would produce a better quality output in the case
of ß, but I'm not sure the behaviour of compiletime composition
should differ from the behaviour of the runtime composition.
