I've said that an easy way to allow rvalue assignment and `as_lvalue` can be provided, and by default it is not allowed.

> I agree it would be too disruptive. But there is no "forever", for example, C++17/20 removed a lot of old facilities like auto_ptr. What's wrong with removing some old facility if there's a suitable replacement, and it's been long enough?
You haven't proved that this is like `auto_ptr` though (which is a
type with a copy constructor that actively lies to you). You cannot
make proxy iterators without this functionality. You have proposed
nothing to replace it.
It's easy enough to delete the rvalue-reference version of the
assignment operator if that's what you want for your type. Why should
this be forced onto others?
