This is still valid in D2.

import std.stdio;
void main()
{
    int[] arr = [1,2,3];
    auto p = &(arr[0..2]);  // same as &(arr[0..2])
    writeln(typeof(p).stringof);    // int[]*
    writeln(arr.ptr);
    writeln(&arr);
    writeln(p);
    assert(&arr == p);
}

I think this is bad behavior, because it allows nonsense code like follows.

void main()
{
    int[] arr = [1,2,3];
    foo(arr[0..2]);         // ref parameter can receive lvalue made by slicing
    assert(arr == [1,2,3]); // assertion succeeds...
}
void foo(ref int[] arr)
{
    arr = [4,5,6];          // what is modified?
}
