2066. Missing specification of vector::resize(size_type)

In C++1x (N3090) there are two version of vector::resize — [vector.capacity]:

void resize(size_type sz);
void resize(size_type sz, const T& c);

The text in [vector.capacity]/12 only mentions "no effects on throw" for the two args version of resize:

Requires: If an exception is thrown other than by the move constructor of a non-CopyConstructible T there are no effects.

This seems like unintentional oversight since resize(size) is semantically the same as resize(size, T()). Additionally, the C++03 standard only specify single version of resize with default for the second argument - 23.2.4:

void resize(size_type sz, T c = T());

Therefore not requiring same guarantees for both version of resize is in fact a regression.
