If that were true, they wouldn't specify a kind of behavior. Yet they
do; lazy evaluation is part of them.

What exactly would it mean to have a view that evaluated iterators
with the individual sub-views happening on different threads? How
could you even get a `begin` iterator from such a thing?

This sounds more like a use case for a sequence of generators, not
ranges (generators can present as ranges, but they're always input
ranges, unlike views). Right tool for the right job.
