1854. Disallowing use of implicitly-deleted functions

Section: 9.5.2  [dcl.fct.def.default]     Status: drafting     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2014-02-11

The resolution of issue 1778 means that whether an explicitly-defaulted function is deleted or not cannot be known until the end of the class definition. As a result, new rules are required to disallow references (in, e.g., decltype) to explicitly-defaulted functions that might later become deleted.

Notes from the June, 2014 meeting:

The approach favored by CWG was to make any reference to an explicitly-defaulted function ill-formed if it occurs prior to the end of the class definition.
