In order to ensure that the pattern range is compatible with the inner range, join_with_view requires that the two range types must satisfy compatible-joinable-ranges, which requires that the value type, reference type, and rvalue reference type of the two range types share a common type.

However, when the two range types are const-qualified, there is no guarantee that their common reference type still exists, in which case a hard error may occur since join_with_view's const begin does not check for this (online example):

#include <ranges>

struct S {
  S(const int&);
  S(const int&&) = delete;

int main() {
  const auto r = std::views::single(std::views::single(0))
               | std::views::join_with(std::views::single(S{0}));
  auto e = std::ranges::iter_move(r.begin()); // hard error
