[Moved to DR at the November, 2014 meeting.]
Proposed resolution (November, 2014):
This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 1838.
According to 9.8 [basic.namespace] paragraph 1,
The name of a namespace can be used to access entities declared in that namespace; that is, the members of the namespace.
implying that all declarations in a namespace, including definitions of members of nested namespaces, explicit instantiations, and explicit specializations, introduce members of the containing namespace. _N4868_.220.127.116.11 [namespace.memdef] paragraph 3 clarifies the intent somewhat:
Every name first declared in a namespace is a member of that namespace.
However, current changes to clarify the behavior of deleted functions (which must be deleted on their “first declaration”) state that an explicit specialization of a function template is its first declaration.
