743. Use of decltype in a nested-name-specifier

[Voted into WP at March, 2010 meeting as document N3049.]

The grammar for nested-name-specifier in _N4567_.5.1.1 [expr.prim.general] paragraph 7 does not allow decltype to be used in a qualified-id. This could be useful for cases like:

   auto vec = get_vec();
   decltype(vec)::value_type v = vec.first();
(See also issue 950.)

Proposed resolution (September, 2009):
