For purposes of avoiding data races ([res.on.data.races]), implementations shall consider the following functions to be const: begin, end, rbegin, rend, front, back, data, find, lower_bound, upper_bound, equal_range, at and, except in associative or unordered associative containers, operator.
Notwithstanding ([res.on.data.races]), implementations are required to avoid data races when the contents of the contained object in different elements in the same sequence, excepting vector<bool>, are modified concurrently.
[ Note: For a vector<int> x with a size greater than one, x = 5 and *x.begin() = 10 can be executed concurrently without a data race, but x = 5 and *x.begin() = 10 executed concurrently may result in a data race. As an exception to the general rule, for a vector<bool> y, y = true may race with y = true. — end note ]
