I don't see how this could work for my situation, see my answer to John.
Statechart users derive their normal (non-template) classes from the class
template statechart::simple_state. Unless I'm missing something, adding
static asserts to simple_state (as you do in the class template C) would not
work as the compiler would then try to generate copy functions for the
user-defined classes only to issue an error when it tries to instantiate
simple_state copy functions.

I ask again: If you really do care so much about these warnings then why
don't you simply reenable them after including the headers that disable
them? As Bo has mentioned, chances are that other headers that you include
also disable these warnings.
