IMHO the default-constractibility requirement is unfortunate and in my
particular case is not achievable. Understandably a library can only create
an object it knows nothing about by imposing certain conditions (like
demanding a certain constructor). Therefore, I'd consider any attempt to
avoid that "delicate" situation to be a good design philosophy as it extends
the applicability scope.
