627. Values behaving as types

Section: 6.8.2  [basic.fundamental]     Status: NAD     Submitter: Gennaro Prota     Date: 15 March 2007

6.8.2 [basic.fundamental] paragraph 6 states,

As described below, bool values behave as integral types.

This sentence looks definitely out of order: how can a value behave as a type?

Suggested resolution:

Remove the sentence entirely, as it doesn't supply anything that isn't already stated in the following paragraphs and in the referenced section about integral promotion.

Rationale (July, 2007):

This is, at most, an editorial issue with no substantive impact. The suggestion has been forwarded to the project editor for consideration.
