I might probably understand this problem.

transform_view, in order to implement `deref` etc, uses `result_of`
in the standard manner, where `result<F(int)> means that rvalue is passed.
But, as_vector applied to transform_view uses `result_of` in a strange manner
through value_of.

A FunctionObject for transform_view requires two result_of implementations;
It seems impossible.
