I disagree.  If an operation is lazy, there is absolutely nothing you as
a user can to to change that.  I've been bitten by that more than once.
If an operation is too strict (which I have yet to encounter), you can
always wrap the offending data in another constructor.

I'm not prejudiced, I hate everyone equally.
