Indeed.

But there is no way that a mutable char [] could be passed as a template value
parameter. And it's not a type. So what is
template(char[] X) ?

int foo(char[] c)() { return 0; }

void main(){
   char [] z;
   int a = foo!(z)(); // ok
}

I can't see anything in the spec to indicate what this means. From the
.mangleof, it seems to be accepting it as an alias parameter.

OK, I'll change this to a spec error.
