[Voted into WP at October, 2009 meeting.]

Proposed resolution (July, 2009):

Change 7.6.2.6 [expr.alignof] paragraph 1 as follows:

The operand shall be a type-id representing a complete effective object type or an array thereof or a reference to a complete effective object type.

7.6.2.6 [expr.alignof] paragraph 1 currently says regarding alignof,

The operand shall be a type-id representing a complete effective object type or a reference to a complete effective object type.

This prohibits taking the alignment of an array type with an unknown bound. There doesn't appear to be any reason for this restriction.
