It was the intent of the rvalue reference proposal for unique to only require MoveAssignable: N1860.
And Pete replied:
That was overridden by the subsequent changes made for concepts in N2573, which reimposed the C++03 requirements.
My impression is that this overwrite was a simple (unintentional) mistake. Wording below to correct it.
[ Batavia (2009-05): ]
Howard notes this issue resolves a discrepancy between the synopsis and the description.
Move to NAD Editorial.
Change 27.7.9 [alg.unique]:
template<ForwardIterator Iter> requires OutputIterator<Iter, Iter::reference> && EqualityComparable<Iter::value_type> Iter unique(Iter first, Iter last); template<ForwardIterator Iter, EquivalenceRelation<auto, Iter::value_type> Pred> requires OutputIterator<Iter, RvalueOf<Iter::reference>::type> && CopyConstructible<Pred> Iter unique(Iter first, Iter last, Pred pred);
Note that the synopsis in [algorithms.syn] is already correct.
