Proposed resolution (February, 2014):

Change 9.5.1 [dcl.fct.def.general] paragraph 5 as follows:

A cv-qualifier-seq or a ref-qualifier (or both) can be part of a non-static member function declaration, non-static member function definition, or pointer to member function only (9.3.4.6 [dcl.fct]); see _N4868_.11.4.3.2 [class.this]. [Note: a cv-qualifier-seq affects the type of this in the body of a member function; see 9.3.4.3 [dcl.ref]. —end note]

Paragraph 5 of 9.5.1 [dcl.fct.def.general] says,

A cv-qualifier-seq or a ref-qualifier (or both) can be part of a non-static member function declaration, non-static member function definition, or pointer to member function only (9.3.4.6 [dcl.fct]); see _N4868_.11.4.3.2 [class.this].

This is redundant with the specification in 9.3.4.6 [dcl.fct] paragraph 6 and is factually incorrect, since the list there contains other permissible constructs. It should be at most a note or possibly removed altogether.
