Not sure I feel the same about virtual because of the "only pay for what you use" principle. Another thing: something like a 'delayed const' (similar to 'final' in Java IINM) so that you can modify a variable and then 'constify' it so that it doesn't change after that point (something the compiler could enforce rather than assignment to a const& and relying on people to not use the pre-const& variable after).
