We seem to be reaching consensus that along with my suggested change: 
Page 10, C1255, line 2, change "or" to
", a variable that has the ALLOCATABLE or POINTER attribute, a variable
of assumed shape, a variable of assumed type, a variable of assumed
character length, or".

we need to add these constraints:

C524a A coarray shall not be a dummy argument of a procedure that
has a <proc-language-binding-spec>.

C1255a A variable that not of assumed type and is a dummy argument of a 
procedure that has a <proc-language-binding-spec> shall be of 
interoperable type.
