Nothing, except it is just usually not needed, so coding styles that enforce 
it are more harm than good, since using it is often just breaking C++98 compat 
for no good reason. The same as with using template<T<>> over template<T<> >. 
It is neat syntax, but also mostly pointless, and pisses me off when people 
autoreplace it an entire project, with the only consequence of breaking older 
compilers and tools and not improving anything except satisfying their OCD.
