This is based on conversations I've had with Andrei and Walter on 
here and on Github.

There was a bunch of threads here about six months ago by Andrei 
talking about the different problems he was running into when 
trying to implement @safe and @nogc containers. One of the 
conclusions was that ref counting was going to have to be a 
nessesary component of the solution. This led to DIP1000 because 
of Andrei's conclusion that "Safe reference counting cannot be 
implemented as a library"$1tth$

Also, there's the vision document, which lays out some goals but 
does not talk about containers:
