3-9-2 and auto in future MISRA C++14

as stated here ( the next version of MISRA C++ will be based on ISO C++14.
I am curious if you already came to a decision on whether to allow or prohibit the auto keyword for automatic type deduction?
While it is certainly more convenient to write code, i would imagine performing a code review or adapting a static analysis tool would become more challenging.
We are currently working on a new version of MISRA C++ to cover the features added in C++11, 14 and 17 and some requirements from Autosar

The use of auto is part of that work. A draft for public comment is expected next year (2019)
