Even though this is solliciting to become design-by-committee (there will never be full consensus) I will go on record that I think the `_ref`/`_cref` suffixes are reasonable to me. At least they're relatively short and consistent (ref/cref is a closer pair than mutable/const)
In my code I would ironically be tempted to use auto more to hide the crufty names because I know they're views anyways. Which is probably why I don't mind the old names. In terms of minimizing surprise these names do a better job.
