Proposed resolution (August, 2011):

Change 6.8.2 [basic.fundamental] paragraph 3 as follows:

...collectively called the extended integer types. The signed and unsigned integral types shall satisfy the constraints given in ISO C 5.2.4.2.1.

There is no normative requirement on the ranges of the integral types, although the footnote in 6.8.2 [basic.fundamental] paragraph 2 indicates the intent (for int, at least) that they match the values given in the <climits> header. Should there be an explicit requirement of some sort?

(See also paper N1693.)
