You're right, I got things mixed up there. :)

On the "const and immutable" page there is a section named "Removing Immutable
With A Cast", where it says that "The immutable type can be removed with a cast
[...] This does not mean, however, that one can change the data". It says
nothing about const, which was what led me to believe that changing consts is
not illegal, at least.

But I see now that the D/C++ comparison table at the bottom of the page has a
similar statement for consts.

But the rest still stands: It should be possible to take the address of both
consts and immutables.
