The scheme does not implement borrowing. References to internal data should be

I want to make sure we have the same understanding here: the use-case I'm
interested in is a data structure that needs to hold a reference to data it does
not own -- where, obviously, the lifetime of the data structure cannot outlive
the lifetime of the data it references.
Surely this scope proposal ought to address that use-case?
Using ref counted objects should deal with that nicely.
