AFAIK, since type resides in the base class, which is a dependent type,
the compiler won't look in the base class for type; it's looking in
namespace scope and there's no type at namespace scope. So you either
need a using declaration or explicit qualification. (Some versions of
MSVC, at least, happily but incorrectly accept the above code.)

Sorry, no references handy :(
