That wouldn't be enough because proto::matches "knows" about
proto::switch_. It would be easy enough to extend proto::switch_ to take
an optional mpl metafunction that accepts and expression and returns a
type to dispatch on. It would default to proto::tag_of<mpl::_>. Or for
the sake of consistency with the rest of proto, it should probably be a
transform, in which case it would default to proto::tag_of<proto::_>().

Could you open a feature request?
