Yet again, use policy. It'll clutter the code to have 34567 names for
different object while having the shape as a template policy is
prolly better. ANd the enforcement of shape semantic has to be implicit
and static, no need for need_simmetric.

matrix<float, settings(diagonal)> m;

For checking arguments of elements with same shape, just use tag
dispatching or SFINAE instead of concrete typing.
