As a some-time student of General Relativity, technically, no it 
couldn't. :-)

The question was about which noun "undefined" qualifies--is it the 
behavior of the compiler which is undefined, or merely the behavior of 
the compiler's output?  I gather the answer may be the former, while I'd 
have guessed that it is merely the latter.  I suppose one argument in 
favor of the answer being the former is that it is the more insane 
answer, and therefore a priori more likely to be the decision of the 
committee. :-)

Not that it is greatly important that I know the answer, I guess, or I'd 
actually look it up.
