This is interesting, so basically the stable iterators/references are
achieved by allocating each object in a separate node.

This got me thinking, from certain point of view the difference
between std::list and your stable_vector is the ability of the latter
to return elements by index in O(1). Isn't it possible to decouple
this ability from the container itself? In other words, could your
code be refactored to provide indexing over any type of "host

OTOH, I'm guessing that the only type of "host container" that would
make sense is std::list, since the other "stable containers" don't
preserve the ordering between the elements (which makes indexing
impractical) so maybe it isn't worth the effort.
