Looks like you have not read my proposal :)
Here is an excerpt from it:

What if I did not want to redefine them?
First of all, it turns out that they are a crucial part of an interface and
often or always are of interest to end-users. A quick survey of STL shows
that all containers declare all their template parameters and make them
available to users.
Secondly, if there will be found a compelling enough argument for having
the possibility to disable the feature, an approach similar to “= delete”
can be adopted.
(or you can declare them in private section, as an alternative)
