Just curious, do you have any idea what standard library implementations
at present actually rely on this?

Was this addressed at all in C++0x? I.e., were the iterator concepts
formally "orthogonalized" to separate access concepts from traversal
concepts, as outlined in the Boost.Iterator library?

'Cause disallowing proxy references on random access traversal and
bidirectional traversal iterators...that sucks.

Sorry to change the topic... :/
