Proposed resolution (April, 2013):

This issue is resolved by the changes in N3652, adopted at the April, 2013 (Bristol) meeting.

Date: 2011-08-16.00:00:00

The requirement in 6.7.3 [basic.life] paragraph 10 that

  • every constructor call and full-expression in the brace-or-equal-initializers for non-static data members (if any) is a constant expression (7.7 [expr.const]),

is mostly redundant with the constexpr constructor requirements in 9.2.6 [dcl.constexpr] paragraph 4 (although 11.9.3 [class.base.init] does not establish a strict equivalence between brace-or-equal-initializers and mem-initializers).
