I'm on Ron's side but I think this should be worded slightly differently
so people don't have a problem to agree with it. (It's always
problematic to feel how the Conformance flag is waved over one's head.)

CMUCl behaviour is the only reasonable thing to do if you want to solve
the matter _with means the standard provide_.

As the consequences are undefined, implementations may conformingly
grab for means outside the standard.
