461. Make asm conditionally-supported

Section: 9.10  [dcl.asm]     Status: NAD     Submitter: Clark Nelson     Date: 24 May 2004

Now that the concept of "conditionally-supported" is available (see N1564), perhaps asm should not be required of every implementation.

Rationale (October, 2004):

This is covered in paper N1627. We would like to keep asm as a keyword for all implementations, however, to enhance portability by preventing programmers from inadvertently using it as an identifier.
