The Seed sequence requirements (18.104.22.168 [rand.req.seedseq]) require the existence of a member function
template<typename OutputIterator> void param(OutputIterator ob);
The fact that this function returns void instead of the value of ob after accepting the sequence data leads to the same problem as in issue 865 - In case of pure output iterators there is no way to serialize further data into that data sink.

[ 2010 Pittsburgh: ]
No technical counterarguments, but it is simply too late in the process to make this change at this point.
In Table 109 — Seed sequence requirements, expression "r.param(ob)"

In 22.214.171.124 [rand.util.seedseq], class seed_seq synopsis change
