In my opinion, this should be very strictly enforced.  We need a black and white test for “what goes where”.  The “already accepted into a future standard” metric satisfies that.

I’d even go so far as to say that stuff in StringRef that isn’t in string_view (e.g. the atoi stuff) should be split out (e.g. to StringExtras) before the move.
