Well, the standard also says that:

       The type and member designator shall be such that given

               static type t;

       then  the  expression &(t.member-designator) evaluates to an
       address constant.  (If the specified member is a  bit-field,
       the behavior is undefined.)

Note that the standard doesn't actually bother to define
"memeber-designator" formally, but see 6.7.8 Initialization.  We can
haggle about the finer points of specific wording used in the relevant
paragraphs, but I think the intended meaning is pretty clear.
