Ok, I guess that is why I originally spoke about the following interface:

   typedef ... map;
   map m;
   map::node_ptr p = m.get_node_ptr(<like emplace, but only for
                                    constructing the mapped value>);
   p->pair.first = modify( p->pair.second );
   m.insert( boost::move(p) );

So get_node_ptr( ... ) with two overloads would be needed.
