Proposed resolution (February, 2010):

Change 13.9.4 [temp.expl.spec] paragraph 1 as follows:

An explicit specialization of any of the following:

  • non-deleted function template

  • class template

  • non-deleted member function of a class template

  • static data member of a class template

  • member class of a class template

  • member class template of a class or class template

  • non-deleted member function template of a class or class template

can be declared...

According to 13.9.4 [temp.expl.spec] paragraph 1, only non-deleted function templates may be explicitly specialized. There doesn't appear to be a compelling need for this restriction, however, and it could be useful to forbid use of implicitly-instantiated specializations while still allowing use of explicitly-specialized versions.
