Hmmm - I'm pretty sure I read that. On the paper I read, the third
section I read is: "Motivation: Composite objects". That's the end of
it. I guess that's OK for a standards proposal, but I think that Boost
users expect more complete motivation and justification. Examples are
helpful here. If it's better explained, one is likely to get more
people willing to review it - which is better all around.

BTW - our custom is bottom posting here.
