Ralf asked me to make some comments about that document.

Dave and Ralf have made good job and I have virtually no comments!


* I'm uncomfortable with the sentence:

  For example, some people interpret the standard as saying a polar
  internal representation might be legal.

The standard text 26.2.2/1 is clear. However, that doesn't invalidate
your point about complex<> layout; but I don't think it serves it and
it tends to lower your concern.

* I would replace

  A predictable data layout or direct access through references is
  also a prerequisite to enabling essential speed optimizations


  A predictable data layout and direct access to individual components
  through modifiable lvalues is also a prerequisite to enabling
  essential speed optimizations

Again, nice job!
