Well, the docs still use ElementType everywhere.  I don't really know how  
it would be introspected, what common function are all containers expected  
to implement (analogous to front() in a range)?

The only thing I would suggest is that having ElementType or something  
equivalent, would help with documentation, since ddoc would be immune to  
said introspection.
