Discussion:

The overloads of relational operators for vector<bool> specified in [lib.vector.bool] are redundant (they are semantically identical to those provided for the vector primary template) and may even be diagnosed as ill-formed (refer to Daveed Vandevoorde's explanation in c++std-lib-13647).

Proposed resolution:

Remove all overloads of overloads of relational operators for vector<bool> from [lib.vector.bool].
