What could be done, is writing a matrix traits on the basis of vector
traits, something like

matrix_traits< T, enable_if<...L> >

matrix_traits< T, enable_if< is_bindable_vector< T > >::type >:
  vector_as_matrix< T, remove_const<T> >

matrix_traits< T, enable_if< is_bindable_matrix< T > >::type >:
  matrix_detail_traits< T, remove_const<T> >

template< typename T, typename M >
vector_as_matrix {


   static pointer storage( matrix_type& m ) {
      return vector_traits<T>::storage( m );
   static ptrdiff_t num_columns( matrix_type& m ) {
      return 1;
   static ptrdiff_t num_rows( matrix_type& m ) {
      return vector_traits<T>::size( m );


and then, all bindable_vectors would be addressable as Mx1 matrices, adding
trans would give 1xN.
