[Moved to DR at the November, 2014 meeting.]

Proposed resolution (February, 2014):

Change the grammar in 11.9.3 [class.base.init] paragraph 1 as follows:

    mem-initializer-list:
      mem-initializer ...opt
      mem-initializer-list , mem-initializer ...opt , mem-initializer-list
Date: 2013-09-16.00:00:00

The grammar for mem-initializer-list in 11.9.3 [class.base.init] paragraph 1 (after the resolution of issue 1649) is right-recursive:

    mem-initializer-list:
      mem-initializer ...opt
      mem-initializer ...opt , mem-initializer-list

In general, however, such lists elsewhere in the Standard are described using a left-recursive grammar, e.g., for initializer-list in 9.4 [dcl.init] paragraph 1:

    initializer-list:
      initializer-clause ...opt
      initializer-list , initializer-clause ...opt

It would be better to be consistent in the definition of mem-initializer-list.
