Additional note, April, 2015:

EWG has decided not to make a change in this area.

It appears that naming an implicitly-declared member function in a friend declaration requires the full set of decorations to be specified. For example,

  struct A { };
  struct B { friend constexpr A::A() noexcept; };

There is implementation variation regarding the enforcement of this requirement, however. Should the Standard provide default treatment for such cases, allowing the simpler

    friend A::A();

?
