Yes our goals include "road testing" libraries that are intended for
standardization. But as part of that it is also a goal to gate-keep what is
useful to the C++ community. Which is why part of the review process
involves getting community "approval" to even put a library in the review
queue. So it's not out of the realm to question if something is useful even
as late as the review itself. Because after all usability defines who uses
the library. And hence what the library ought to do.
