This actually makes sense, IFF the multi-dimensional case is possible.
So if T[] and T[N] are valid, then T[N][M] should also be.
This increases the scope greatly but has an incredible difficult
questions to answer: What would operator[] return? I don't have a good

For names I'd certainly agree with vector and array for container types
which are resizeable or non-resizeable respectively.
While I see the reasoning in "value", as a "regular" type is implied as
opposed to a reference type, I think the name should stay array so it
can be recognized as a container.
