An existing implementation, particularly one that is available for
inspection, increases confidence that a proposal is well thought out
and implementable.

That said, type traits are often simple enough that there isn't any
question of implement-ability. But the question may come up as to why
some haven't been implemented? Do they require compiler support, for

You might sound out LWG members who are interested in type traits for
their opinions. Contact me privately for the names and email address
