Discussion:

I'm seeing something strange in the paragraphs 26.4.4.4 [map.modifiers] and 26.4.5.3 [multimap.modifiers]: they both talk about tuple<const key_type, mapped_type> but I think they should be talking about pair<const key_type, mapped_type> because, among other reasons, a tuple is not convertible to a pair. If I replace tuple with pair everything makes sense to me.

The proposed resolution is obvious.

This is by far not the only necessary fix within both sub-clauses. For details see the 2010-10-29 comment in 2005.

Consensus that this issue will be resolved by 2005, but held open until that issue is resolved.
