The "overload" for the function exceptions() in paragraph 8 gives the impression that there is another function of this function defined in class ios_base. However, this is not the case. Thus, it is hard to tell how the semantics (paragraph 9) can be implemented: "Call the corresponding member function specified in clause 31 [input.output]."

Proposed resolution:

In 99 [depr.ios.members] paragraph 8, move the declaration of the function exceptions()into class basic_ios.
