I think the idea was that everyone would use make_checked_array_iterator() (or, for vector/array destinations, write to them directly instead of through pointers).
During VC8, the idea was also that checking in release mode was totally cool and wouldn't be a big deal. I had... differences with that, which is why VC10 release mode performs no checking.
