I believe this is unrelated to missing-typename nonconformance (remember, VC doesn't do two-phase name lookup, so template parsing is effectively deferred until instantiation, where the typeness of stuff is known) and rvalue references (you should be able to trigger the same issue with "||"). Instead, VC wasn't keeping around all of the information needed for template non-type parameters. A bug in this area was fixed for VS14, you can try CTP1 to check. Or if you send me a self-contained repro, I can compile it with our current development build.
