It's a bit less redundant to write the type name, since both members of
the pair have to be the same, and it has a little more communicative power,
since after all pair<Iter,Iter> doesn't have to represent a range; it
has only been retroactively adapted to model Range when p.second is
reachable from p.first.

So, not completely useless, IMO.
