They cannot take voids.

Void. Just to trigger each transformation.

No, the opposite, to keep the elements mutable as they were.
Algorithms in Fusion take const&, 'as_view' is mean to workaround.
Not sure if Fusion will insist on functional-style.

What do you think? Are these already achieved in some way that I didn't

It'll be soon. (but not for the docs :p)
