The classes basic_stringstream (31.8.5 [stringstream]), basic_istringstream (31.8.3 [istringstream]), and basic_ostringstream (31.8.4 [ostringstream]) are inconsistent in their definition of the type traits_type: For istringstream, this type is defined, for the other two it is not. This should be consistent.

Proposed resolution:

Proposed resolution:

To the declarations of basic_ostringstream (31.8.4 [ostringstream]) and basic_stringstream (31.8.5 [stringstream]) add:

typedef traits traits_type;
