You say

  "This proposal seeks to deprecate ellipsis parameters without a
   preceding comma."

so that would deprecate both of these:

  void f(int ...);
  void g(int p ...);

But in the wording section you now have:

  "Declarators where this ambiguity arises and the ellipsis is parsed
  as part of the parameter-declaration-clause are deprecated."

This would only deprecate the first example, but not the second one,
as there is no ambiguity in the second case.

I believe you want to say

  "A parameter-declaration-clause of the form
   parameter-declaration-list ... is deprecated."

And you'll also want to add an Annex D entry.
