Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4659.

  1. In [meta.trans.other], edit Table 50 "Other transformations" as indicated:

    Table 50 — Other transformations
    Template Comments
    template <size_t Len, class... Types>
    struct aligned_union;
    The member typedef type shall be a POD type suitable for use as uninitialized storage for any object whose type is listed in Types; its size shall be at least Len. The static member alignment_value shall be an integral constant of type size_t whose value is the strictest alignment of all types listed in Types.
    Requires: At least one type is provided. Each type in the parameter pack Types shall be a complete object type.
