Well, mostly, but it's still user-visible. A transform might pattern match
against expressions like this:

struct my_xform {

    template<typename TerminalValue1, typename TerminalValue2>
    auto operator()(
        my_expr<expr_kind::terminal, TUPLE<TerminalValue1>> const & lhs,
        my_expr<expr_kind::terminal, TUPLE<TerminalValue2>> const & rhs)
    { return /*...*/; }


If TUPLE can be only std::tuple or hana::tuple, that's a lot easier to
write than if it can be any TupleLike.
