The member-access will not become valid. The only minor dispute is in
but that will not make indirecting through a null pointer like that valid.

The only dispute in the offsetof article is about whether that
indirection is UB in C. In C++ it is, and will remain so.
That's why C++-compliant stddef.h implementations don't do that.
