It seems that the return type of <=> for integer-class types is not specified consistently with other comparison operators. Even P2393R0 has ignored it.

IMO strong_ordering should be added to [iterator.concept.winc]/(5.3), and three_way_comparable<strong_ordering> should be added to [iterator.concept.winc]/8.

The upcoming revision P2393R1 will provide additional wording to solve this issue.
