14 Member access control [class.access]

14.6 Multiple access [class.paths]

If a name can be reached by several paths through a multiple inheritance graph, the access is that of the path that gives most access. [Example:

class W { public: void f(); };
class A : private virtual W { };
class B : public virtual W { };
class C : public A, public B {
  void f() { W::f(); }          // OK

Since W​::​f() is available to C​::​f() along the public path through B, access is allowed. end example]
