Patrice: Part of what Jonathan is saying is that the right approach to this
specific entry is *not* a WG21 paper; it's a vendor bug report. But only if
your vendor actually has that bug, and it sounds like nobody does. So
there's Nothing To Do on this entry.

But! PMR's wording *used to* contain dynamic_cast, until we removed it via
LWG3000 in March 2018. The P2966 entry was probably brought up sometime
before 2018, and should have been removed from P2966 as a result of
LWG3000's resolution.
