[Moved to DR at October 2002 meeting.]
Does dropping a cv-qualifier on a reference binding prevent the binding as far as overload resolution is concerned? Paragraph 4 says "Other restrictions on binding a reference to a particular argument do not affect the formation of a conversion sequence." This was intended to refer to things like access checking, but some readers have taken that to mean that any aspects of reference binding not mentioned in this section do not preclude the binding.
Proposed resolution (10/01):
In 126.96.36.199.5 [over.ics.ref] paragraph 4 add the indicated text:
Other restrictions on binding a reference to a particular argument do not affect the formation of a standard conversion sequence, however.
