3679. Is <ranges> sufficient for istream_view?

The following is rejected by libstdc++:

#include <ranges>

void call(std::ranges::istream_view<int>& v);

The error is quite cryptic, but ultimately the issue is not including <istream>. I think this currently isn't required to work, so the fact that it does not work is conforming. But should it be required to work?

I think either this should work or we should add a note to 26.6.6 [range.istream] about the include.
