Not that much dependencies. We only need formatters.h in this mode which
has the following common includes:

#include <bits/c++config.h>
#include <bits/cpp_type_traits.h>

and if rtti is enabled the less common:

#include <typeinfo>

We would just leverage on the good job done to diagnose problems.

(Written before Christopher reply:)

At least program will compile only if iterator is coming from a vector
of the same type. So behavior is undefined only if user pass an invalid
iterator which is exactly what this check tries to detect, isn't it
paradoxical ? If this undefined behavior results in the program abortion
this is what should happen anyway. If it doesn't abort then the program
will definitely not behaves as expected so this check doesn't make
anything worst, no ?
