I take it that the use of reinterpret_cast<>() is meant to bypass the 
restriction that offsetof() won't work on complex types?  Is the 
compiler being able to calculate "&klass::member" an equivalent 
restriction? What, if any, trouble could I expect when using 
"enclosureOf" on a class w/ inheritance?  Are there any restrictions 
which need to be documented (ie with virtual inheritance)?

"containerOf"?

As long as CONTAINER continues to be pulled in by dbDefs.h I see no problem.
