Thanks for the proposals Marc, the list looks good to me.

As for

>>> - space after template and before <:

I was wondering what cppreference suggests, and was delighted to find that the first few lines of

Encoding this in the sanity bot and/or in _clang-format avoids that we waste time on this during code review.
