If I understand the Proxy proposal correctly, it would solve the multiple
signatures case but not the case where it's difficult or impossible to
calculate the callback argument type within the outer signature.

It's a bit difficult to describe, but it can happen in code that's not all
that complicated - consider passing to the callback a
ranges::transform_view where the transforming function is a lambda.
