So, you are talking about following mapping:
Original | Wrapped
Input | Input
Forward | Forward
Bidirectional | Forward
RandomAccess | RandomAccess
+ dereference of end of returned will be undefined (even if it was legal
in "original" range).
+ comparison of iterators from different span(..) invocations (with
different args) on same range will be also undefined.
Ok, I thought maybe you are talking about something more generally
