Defines the category of an iterator. Each tag is an empty type and corresponds to one of the five iterator categories:

Iterator category tags carry information that can be used to select the most efficient algorithms for the specific requirement set that is implied by the category. However, concept-based overloading is preferred.

For every InputIterator type I, ranges::iterator_category_t<I> must be defined to be an alias for the most specific category tag that describes the iterator's behavior.
