Are you saying you really understand what that phrase means? Can you
explain it, and say please what notion do you assume as "primitive"
(e.g. "converting an expression)?

I don't think you can say whether a conversion is well-defined or not
in C++ without considering *how* it is done.

Maybe these are minor points in the context of your reasoning. Sorry
if that is the case, but I tend to stop reading long posts when I hit
(what I think is) the first major problem.
