Re: [SG16] [isocpp-core] Updated draft revision: D2029R2 (Proposed resolution for core issues 411, 1656, and 2333; numeric and universal character escapes in character and string literals)

My layman’s reading is that implementation defined behavior can include rejecting the program with a diagnostic; in this case we have an implementation defined value, which implies that there is a value to define, and I infer that code must we well-defined.

I yield to Jens for a more accurate description though ;)

My understanding (and someone please correct me if I'm mistaken; I don't recall where I was informed of this) is that, in the C standard, implementation-defined includes an allowance for rejecting the code as ill-formed, but in the C++ standard, implementation-defined implies well-formed; hence the addition of conditionally-supported. If that understanding is correct, then the updated wording corrects alignment with the intent of the C standard.
