If you do that, don't use resize() and size(). Use reserve() and capacity(), and don't forget to push_back() one element to make &v[0] valid. Having said all that, it really should be wrapped in a buffer class to prevent mistakes. Perhaps that has the makings of a useful Boost addition in its own right.

There's also std::array and boost::array.

You could even combine the two into one class to get SBO, though I think that's not likely to be useful if the caller allocates the memory. (It would be useful if the API allocates space.)
