OK, it's possible to write custom function

    template<class charT, class traits, class Allocator>
    basic_string_ref<charT, traits>
unsafe_make_ref(std::basic_string<charT, traits, Allocator> && str)
        return { str };

and use it.

Even then, IMHO string_ref should not

I'm not sure that one extra call [`print(unsafe_make_ref(getStr()))`
instead of `print(getStr())`] is too high usability price for the safety in
common case. Of course, it's only IMHO.
