Of course it is! But not if it does not work even though it compiles.
I requires a different method.

Your other proposal sound fine to me as long as its fine for the user.
I was actually hoping for something as the standard library does. You
know, there are these modifiers. I don't recall perfectly, but they
somehow look like this

std::cout << std::ios_base::hex << 10 << std::endl;

or then with Eigen types like this

std::cout << Eigen::Format(...) << m;

or this

std::cin >> Eigen::Format(...) >> m;

I would like this a lot since it were following the standard approach
but the other one is fine too.
