Ah thanks, Steven, I misremembered apparently. Just to get this straight,
what you're saying is that if someone were to make a concept map for a
random access iterator they'd have to first explicitly make concept maps for
iterator, input iterator, forward iterator, and bidirectional iterator? That
should solve the problem, albeit somewhat tedious for people creating models
of concepts. That's also much easier to implement than my current approach
of having the concept map for the refinement act as the concept map for the
parent concept, so I'll probably follow that route.

I should just look at the concept proposals from now on for reference. No
sense in putting in a lot of work to just come to the same conclusions with
likely similar rationale.
