Not fundamentally. But what do you think about the API of my library? I
found it easier to understand when you see the "member" functions
almost as is in the template arguments, and you don't have to invent
names like ostreamable for some more domain-specific functions.

Hmm, that's right. But I'm a bit puzzled by not being able to think of
a good real-world example of such problem.
