Proposed resolution (September, 2010):

Change 13.2 [temp.param] paragraph 4 as follows:

A non-type template-parameter shall have one of the following (optionally cv-qualified) types:

  • integral or enumeration type,

  • pointer to object or pointer to function,

  • lvalue reference to object or lvalue reference to function,

  • pointer to member.,

  • std::nullptr_t.

std::nullptr_t is not currently allowed by 13.2 [temp.param] paragraph 4 to be used as the type of a non-type template parameter. However, this could arise for a template with a non-type template parameter with a dependent type in a template intended for use with pointers, e.g.,

    template<typename T, T t> void f();
    f<std::nullptr_t, nullptr>();

or in a case of delegation.
