1993. Use of template<> defining member of explicit specialization

Section: 13.9.4  [temp.expl.spec]     Status: drafting     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2014-08-31

Issue 531 surveyed existing practice at the time and determined that the most common syntax for defining a member of an explicit specialization used the template<> prefix. This approach, however, does not seem consistent, since such a definition is not itself an explicit specialization.
