I don't understand what the benefit will be when applied to
shared_ptr_observer? All I get from the example is that if you have a class
X derived from A<T>, you can tell whether X and T are the same type or not.
Manual forwarding works just as well without a template parameter. Maybe if
you explained (as if writing user documentation for the feature) what the
template argument of shared_ptr_observer is supposed to be set to, and what
effect it would have? The behavior associated with a non-template
shared_ptr_observer tag can be spelled out in 1 or 2 sentences.
