I think that is very reasonable approach for most C++ in production use
today, which still use C++98 or C+03.

It is also worth thinking (in longer term) about C++11 with a programming
model that includes far more compile-time computation than
previous C++ versions did.  My suspicion is that newer versions of C
will soon include something similar :-)
