Proposed Resolution (04/99): Change the text in 17 [temp] paragraph 8 from:

A non-exported template that is neither explicitly specialized nor explicitly instantiated must be defined in every translation unit in which it is implicitly instantiated (17.8.1 [temp.inst] ) or explicitly instantiated (17.8.2 [temp.explicit] ); no diagnostic is required.
to:
A non-exported template must be defined in every translation unit in which it is implicitly instantiated (17.8.1 [temp.inst] ), unless the corresponding specialization is explicitly instantiated (17.8.2 [temp.explicit] ) in some translation unit; no diagnostic is required. [Note: See also 17.8.2 [temp.explicit] ]

Section 17 [temp] paragraph 8 says:

A non-exported template that is neither explicitly specialized nor explicitly instantiated must be defined in every translation unit in which it is implicitly instantiated (17.8.1 [temp.inst] ) or explicitly instantiated (17.8.2 [temp.explicit] ); no diagnostic is required.
Shouldn't the first underlined phrase be omitted to avoid conflict with the second underlined phrase?

From John Spicer:

The first "explicitly instantiated" is intended to mean "explicitly instantiated in some other translation unit".
