Well, an "augmented tree" is just any kind of tree where there is any
kind of "augmentation"; I think that's orthogonal to whether the
internal nodes store data. But that's just a matter of taxonomy.

I don't think ICL is relevant, except that ICL could be re-implemented
using augmented trees (interval trees). Of more interest is
Boost.Intrusive, which would could be extended to support augmented
trees as Jeff Snyder has proposed in one of the threads that I linked
to before. Are you familiar with Boost.Intrusive?

(Do you have a motivating application?)
