[Voted into the WP at the February, 2012 meeting; moved to DR at the October, 2012 meeting.]
The requirement in 6.3 [basic.def.odr] paragraph 4 that a type T must be complete if an expression is implicitly converted to a pointer to T or reference to T inadvertently applies to user-defined conversions, although it was intended only to refer to built-in conversions.
Proposed resolution (August, 2011):
Change the indicated bullet of 6.3 [basic.def.odr] paragraph 4 as follows:
an expression that is not a null pointer constant, and has
type other than void*, is converted to
the type pointer to T or reference to T using
an implicit conversion (
7.3 [conv]), a dynamic_cast (220.127.116.11 [expr.dynamic.cast]) or a static_cast (18.104.22.168 [expr.static.cast]),
