I'm inclined to think that the cleanest solution is to abandon the special rule
(cast rule 1) that says atomization doesn't happen if the target type is
namespace sensitive. It's a paternalistic rule that prevents people doing
things whose effects might be surprising, but it causes orhogonality problems.
The orthonogality problems are bearable for cast expressions, but are very
disruptive if we try to carry the same rule through to constructor functions;
and we really don't want to introduce a difference between casts and
constructors.
