19. Clarify protected member access

Section: 11.8.5  [class.protected]     Status: NAD     Submitter: unknown     Date: unknown

11.8.5 [class.protected] paragraph 1 says:

Instead of saying "references a protected nonstatic member of a base class", shouldn't this be rewritten to use the concept of naming class as 11.8.3 [class.access.base] paragraph 4 does?

Rationale (04/99): This rule is orthogonal to the specification in 11.8.3 [class.access.base] paragraph 4.
