But you use a dereference operator to access the value.
Do you find confusing to use a pointer to a bool too?
It seems natural to use the unspecified-bool-type idiom
to me. But this is only personal taste IMHO.

I don't find it so. I didn't even knew there were a is_initialized
function. Though I don't find using it any more confusing.
So either way should be good IMO.
