Rationale (June, 2014):

This request for a language extension should be evaluated by EWG before any action is taken.

There does not seem to be any significant technical obstacle to allowing a void* pointer to be dereferenced, and that would avoid having to use weighty circumlocutions when casting to a reference to an object designated by such a pointer.
