1950. Restructuring description of ranks of conversion sequences

Section:  [over.ics.rank]     Status: NAD     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2014-06-18

The structure of 12.2.3 [over.match.viable] paragraph 3 is of the form

It would be better to de-bullet this description, define the conditions, and then say, “X is better than Y if condition 1, condition 2, ...” This would also avoid the awkward “or, if not that,” phrasing.

Rationale (November, 2014):

CWG expressed a preference for the existing structure of this paragraph over the suggested rewrite. The change from “or, if not that,” to “otherwise” can be handled editorially, if desired.
