Yes.

However, C DR 260 is from 2004 and doesn't seem to propose
a change in wording; instead, it just interprets the existing
normative text. Yet, I'm failing to reconcile the "committee
response" in C DR 260 with the C11 text about pointer equality.

But I gather the whole "provenance" exercise is intended to
address this.
