The problem is that an "unqualified name" doesn't refer to unqualified-id
(as per the grammar) AFAICS.

3/4: "A name is an identifier (2.10) that denotes an entity or label."
2.10: "An identifier is an arbitrarily long sequence of letters and digits."

So, in the example above, 'f<int>' - the postfix-expression - is an
unqualified-id, but not a name. 'f' is a name (of a template.)

That's my interpretation, of course.
