Look further in 3.4.2/3:

Let X be the lookup set produced by unqualified lookup (3.4.1) and let Y be
the lookup set produced by
argument dependent lookup (defined as follows). If X contains
- a declaration of a class member, or
- a block-scope function declaration that is not a using-declaration, or
- a declaration that is neither a function or a function template
then Y is empty.

X contains f, a class member, even if it's a static class member.

Yes, this works. No objections.
