[Moved to DR at the September, 2013 meeting.]

Proposed resolution (April, 2013):

When thread_local is applied to a variable of block scope the storage-class-specifier static is implied if it does not appear explicitly no other storage-class-specifier appears in the decl-specifier-seq.

According to 9.2.2 [dcl.stc] paragraph 4,

When thread_local is applied to a variable of block scope the storage-class-specifier static is implied if it does not appear explicitly.

This, presumably unintentionally, prohibits a declaration like

  void f() {
    extern thread_local int n;
  }
