It can be replaced on the compilers on which Phoenix works. It can also
conform to the specification of std::bind, allowing people to move code back
and forth.

This is very reassuring. Have you considered making a "reimplementation" of
Lambda's headers part of the reviewed library? Might this be a feature that
would convince people that it is not necessary to wait for V3 in order to
"accept" Phoenix? Lambda's interface is stable and moving from V2 to V3 will
not affect its users.
