[Moved to DR at the October, 2012 meeting.]
Proposed resolution (February, 2012):
Change 7.3.14 [conv.fctptr] paragraph 1 as follows:
...any other value is converted to true.
Aprvalue of type std::nullptr_t can be converted to a prvalue of type bool; the resulting value is false.
The resolution of issue 654 (found in paper N2656) enabled conversion of rvalues of type std::nullptr_t to bool. It appears that the use cases for this conversion are primarily or exclusively the “contextually converted to bool” cases, with some possibility for inadvertent misuse in other contexts. Paper N2656 mentioned the idea of limiting the conversions to the direct initialization contexts; that possibility should be reexamined.
