Subject: Re: An confusion about the paragraph [temp.expl.spec#18]

Although `B<double>` is a template-id where `B` is a class template,
however the declaration `template <class Y> template <>
void A<Y>::B<double>::mf2() { } ` is not used to declare `B<double>`
instead it declares `mf2`. In this section [temp.expl.spec], the wording
"explicitly specialize" should mean the explicit specialization
declaration. This is the problematic place, because the entity be declared
is `mf2` which is not a *class member template*.IMHO, the actually intent
of this paragraph may be:

>In this declaration (explicit specialization declaration), each
`template-id` in nested-name-specifier that is unspecialized shall be
explicitly specialized.

I'm not 100% sure, only infer this from the result of compiling. Right?
