20.11.5 [util.smartptr.ownerless] (class template owner_less) says that operator()(x,y) shall return x.before(y).
However, shared_ptr and weak_ptr have an owner_before() but not a before(), and there's no base class to provide a missing before().
Being that the class is named owner_less , I'm guessing that "before()" should be "owner_before()", right?
