Have a reference for that convention?

Yes, because I may need to do it from time to time, so my code has to be
ugly. Makes sense ...
std::list is for linked lists, not for vectors. My use case may not involve
random insertions or removals in the vector, an occasional one - maybe,
that in no way means the library should treat me like an idiot who doesn't
know what he's doing. I can read the docs, I don't need to fight against
the API to do something rather simple.
