[Voted into WP at March, 2010 meeting as document N2993.]

There are a number of specifications in the Standard that should also apply to references. For example:

A number of other examples could be cited. A thorough review is needed to make sure that references are completely specified.

Notes from the September, 2008 meeting:

The CWG expressed interest in an approach that would define “variable” to include both objects and references and to use that for both this issue and issue 570.

Proposed resolution (October, 2009):

See paper PL22.16/09-0183 = WG21 N2993. This resolution also resolves issue 570.
