Proposed resolution (August, 2012):

Change 7.7 [expr.const] paragraph 3 as follows:

...An address constant expression is a prvalue core constant expression of pointer type that evaluates to the address of an object with static storage duration, to the address one past the last element of an array with static storage duration, to the address of a function, or to a null pointer value, or a prvalue core constant expression of type std::nullptr_t...

Currently an address constant expression cannot designate the address one past the end of an array. This seems unfortunate.
