You may find paper "Scrap++: Scrap Your Boilerplate in C++"[1] to be
interesting for ideas. One thing that confuses me about your library
is I don't know whether the reflections are semantic or syntactic. I
do think a clear separation of syntax and semantics is important to
writing clear code. Perhaps you can show what a shared_ptr
"implementation of the concept" looks like?

Fusion's adapters, which are purely syntactic, are perfect for what
I've needed so far. Syntactically speaking, are you adding anything
besides data inheritance?
