Sure, that's why I'm open to a PR to make specialization of formatter for non-native string types possible although I'd recommend the non-common approach.

I recommend the non-common approach as well if and only if the common case cannot be handled properly while still using the common case for the majority. The elegancy of fmt is the possibility to pass whatever arguments you want compared to printf's fixed number of types, but somehow using a wrapper for some arguments feels like going back to printf (irrespective of whether an automatic conversion could be error-prone in some non-common cases).
