Even if you decide to go with pseudo-signatures, one novel thing from N3351
is worth adapting: treating every concept as a predicate, so that the
programmer can check himself whether a certain set of types models the

  static_assert( ForwardIterator<int*>, "ouch" );

and so that you can combine concept requirements with any boolean

  template <class T> requires Copyable<T> && sizeof(T) < 8 ...
