There is a bit more to it than just predicates though. Lots of other
stuff changes its rules slightly too in response. I do agree with you
that concept predicates is a more accurate description than concepts
though - I like to think of the TS as proposing a minimum set of
tools with which one could build a Concepts library without murdering
the compiler every compile round. I thank Andrew for helping me come
to that realisation during writing my C++ Now 2014 position paper.
