Discussion:

Table 82 in section 27 mentions the header <cstdlib> for String streams (30.8 [string.streams]) and the headers <cstdio> and <cwchar> for File streams (30.9 [file.streams]). It's not clear why these headers are mentioned in this context since they do not define any of the library entities described by the subclauses. According to 20.5.1.1 [contents], only such headers are to be listed in the summary.

Proposed resolution:

Remove <cstdlib> and <cwchar> from Table 82.

[Copenhagen: changed the proposed resolution slightly. The original proposed resolution also said to remove <cstdio> from Table 82. However, <cstdio> is mentioned several times within section 30.9 [file.streams], including 30.12 [c.files].]
