Ah, I know. If take the `original subobject` of type int as `o1`, and take
the `newly created subobject` of type int as `o2`, I have to say, yes,
because o1 and o2 are transparently replaceable. So, the original
reference `ri` automatically change to refer to the newly subobject. In
this case, P1 is the `original object` of type `S` and P2 is the `newly
created object of type S`, they are the different objects. However, It does
not evidence that `P1` and `P2` can not be the same object, merely in your
example, they refer to the different object. Informally, the
implementation of reference is based on pointer, that means, the address
of the storage is not changed, hence create the same type object in such a
storage, why would the reference be not changed? So, I think, even though
according to the rule [basic.life#8], your case is governed by these rules.
That's my reading.
