Let's put a runtime test at every step of our critical loop, sounds like
a good idea.
I actually somewhat looked into this, and in this case segmented
iterators don't allow any optimization compared to normal iterators.

Also, since this clearly cannot work with heterogeneous scalar/simd
sequences, the iterator would need to fill the remaining data with dummy
values to fill vectors on the boundaries, dummy value which must change
according to what the user needs.

Polymorphic algorithms ended up being a significantly more interesting

I'm afraid you're the one trying to make everything fit into this model
you've somehow taken a liking to.
If you'd like to claim that it can apply, then feel free to show how.
