To me it would be reasonable that unfused_typed, given its name, only
generated the operator to create exactly the sequence type provided. I was
surprised it didn't at first, but since it was clearly documented how to
avoid this behaviour I didn't think too much about it. If this feature
requires extra tweaks, wouldn't it be easier to avoid it? Is it some
particular case you have in mind where one would want to to
default-initialize parts of the sequence?
