Discussion:Addresses GB 30
The definition of 'object state' applies only to class types, implying that fundamental types and arrays do not have this property.
Proposed change: Replacing "an object state" with "a value of an object" in 3.67 [defns.valid] and dropping the definition of "object state" in 99 [defns.obj.state].
