562. qualified-ids in non-expression contexts

Section: 6.5.5.2  [class.qual]     Status: CD6     Submitter: Mike Miller     Date: 6 April 2006

[Accepted at the November, 2020 meeting as part of paper P1787R6 and moved to DR at the February, 2021 meeting.]

Both 6.5.5.2 [class.qual] and 6.5.5.3 [namespace.qual] specify that some lookups are to be performed “in the context of the entire postfix-expression,” ignoring the fact that qualified-ids can appear outside of expressions.

It was suggested in document J16/05-0156 = WG21 N1896 that these uses be changed to “the context in which the qualified-id occurs,” but it isn't clear that this formulation adequately covers all the places a qualified-id can occur.
