1883. Protected access to constructors in mem-initializers

Section: 11.8.5  [class.protected]     Status: drafting     Submitter: Daveed Vandevoorde     Date: 2014-02-26

According to 11.8.5 [class.protected] paragraph 1, except when forming a pointer to member,

All other accesses involve a (possibly implicit) object expression ( [expr.ref]).

It is not clear that this is strictly true for the invocation of a base class constructor from a mem-initializer. A wording tweak may be advisable.
