This is ok in generic code.

In non-generic code, I think it's too clever.

In general, I would always try to preserve which kind of type we're dealing 

   const auto *e =
   auto e* =
   const auto &e =
   auto &e =
   auto e =
   const auto e =

But that's just the level of auto that _I_ feel comfortable with. YMMV.
