+AI-195 inserts the following clause after 8.3(23):
+ An attribute_definition_clause is visible at a place if a declaration
+  at the point of the attribute_definition_clause would be immediately
+  visible at the place. 
+
+This seems a little odd to me. What would seem intuitively reasonable
+would be:
+ An attribute_definition_clause is visible at a place if a declaration
+  at the point of the attribute_definition_clause would be
+  visible at the place. 
+
+Is an attribute_definition_clause intended to be visible at places where
+a declaration at the point of the attribute_definition_clause would be
+visible, but not immediately visible?
+
+If so, how can this be derived from the language of the AI?
+
+If not, what is the rationale behind making the attribute definition
+clause not visible at such places?

+This wording was noted during review, and it was changed by AI-408,
+discussed and approved at the recent Paris ARG meeting.
