Sorry I did not clarify that there were no default template parameters.
(no error policy)
must_initialize was not referring to any of your constrained classes.
It was just a simple class to be added to your library if you wanted,
that forces the user to initialize a variable. That is the compile time

template <typename T>
class must_initialize
    must_initialize(T t) : _value(t) { }
   // operater overloads here

   T _value;
