Proposed resolution (February, 2012):

Change 7.6.1.8 [expr.typeid] paragraph 5 as follows:

The top-level cv-qualifiers of the glvalue expression or the type-id that is the operand of typeid are always ignored. If the type of the expression or type-id is a cv-qualified type, the result of the typeid expression refers to a std::type_info object representing the cv-unqualified type. [Example:...

The requirement in 7.6.1.8 [expr.typeid] paragraph 5 that

The top-level cv-qualifiers of the glvalue expression or the type-id that is the operand of typeid are always ignored

could be misinterpreted as referring to cv-qualifiers in a function type, even though it is clear that a function type is never cv-qualified. A note emphasizing the fact that that is not the case would be helpful.
