For what it's worth:

  - I know that my documentation is incomplete
  - I am amazed by what users figure out
  - I just read your abstract. I won't promise to be in the room (there
    is just too much going on at CppCon), but it sounds valuable to me.

I sincerely hope that you touch on expression templates, too. Seems to
me I need concepts and metaclasses to describe them.
