New Recommendation in Reprint: use of parent_class_type member typedef
A new recommendation has been added, in section 18.5.1 (on page 302):
Recommendation: Use parent_class_type for maintenance robustness.
The section discusses the utility of member types, and in particular why it is useful to have a member typedef for the (primary) parent type.
