I presume you're referring to, but the necessary operators would be in the global namespace and they don't conflict with the existing overloads because of the const arguments:

      class IStream
    , class Char = IStream::char_type
    , class Traits = IStream::traits_type
    , class Allocator = std::allocator<Char>
   IStream &
   operator >>(IStream & _stream,
      std::basic_string<Char,Traits,Allocator> const & _literal);

   template <class IStream>
   IStream &
   operator >>(IStream & _stream,
      typename IStream::char_type const * _literal);

Did I miss something?
