Why stick to this container? Why close this funcionality inside? You are
all of the time debating about one case which should be handled differently.

One should provide an adaptor which would work for all:

typedef std::vector<T> V;
typedef static_vector<T, N> SV;
// however I'd rather change the name for XXX_array

bounded_buffer<V, N> bounded_vector;
bounded_buffer<SV, N> bounded_XXX_array;
bounded_buffer<std::list<T>, N> bounded_list;
bounded_buffer<std::deque<T>, N> bounded_deque;
