No specification for characters with no representation. The example at the end of 8.4.1 refers to "for other native narrow encodings some characters may have no representation" - what happens in such cases?

Suggested action:

Add some definition of the behaviour for characters with no representation.

[2014-02-12 Applied LWG/SG-3 Issaquah wording tweaks to make characters referred to plural.]

[2014-02-08, Beman Dawes provides wording]

Proposed resolution:

Add a paragraph at the end of 8.2.2 [path.type.cvt]:

If the encoding being converted to has no representation for source characters, the resulting converted characters, if any, are unspecified.
