Discussion:

26.2 [container.requirements] says:

-12- Objects passed to member functions of a container as rvalue references shall not be elements of that container. No diagnostic required.

A reference is not an object, but this sentence appears to claim so.

What is probably meant here:

An object bound to an rvalue reference parameter of a member function of a container shall not be an element of that container; no diagnostic required.

Proposed resolution:

Change 26.2 [container.requirements]:

-12- Objects passed to member functions of a container as rvalue references shall not be elements An object bound to an rvalue reference parameter of a member function of a container shall not be an element of that container.; Nno diagnostic required.
