Re: [std-proposals] Add more methods to std::initializer_list instead of overloading

I think if it's already known that il is initializer_list, one can just write il.begin()/il.end(), as they return pointers to the const-qualified element type.

If the consistency between range types is desired, free function templates or CPOs should be used since they handle built-in array types.

But I think il.cbegin() is clearer.
They will also find that only il.begin()/il.end() works, which is weird.

Yes, they will. At that point, they'll fix it to write:
