I've just hit this: should we make some of our very simple types even simpler 
so they're structural types[1] and thus can be passed as template parameters?

For example, QFlags. I've just tried it and I get:

error: ‘QFlags<Qt::AlignmentFlag>’ is not a valid type for a template non-type 
parameter because it is not structural
note: ‘QFlags<Qt::AlignmentFlag>::i’ is not public
