I agree with you that requires is important, particularly for concept-based
overloads where one overload has more refined concepts than another, though
in C++11, you no longer need to use enable_if in the return type or
function parameter list, so obfuscation of the function type is not as much
of a concern as it used to be. For instance, if you use the enable_if
library in the sandbox you can simply do:

template< class T, BOOST_ENABLE_IF( contract::std::EqualityComparable< T >
) >
bool equal1( T const& a, T const& b );
