Experience shows us that programmers want several different types of
smart pointers in practice. I don't see any reason to enshrine a
particular variant in the compiler. Particularly when C++ already
supports smart pointers.
(For example, your variant of smart pointers doesn't seem to help with
pointers in struct fields, when those structs are stored in the heap.)
