The disagreement is over what sorts of strange results are acceptable.

Calling this behavior program error means that results such as
failure, segfaulting or assertion failure are acceptable.

I was stating that the behavior would in all cases be as if one of the
contexts were chosen.

Alexis wants to go farther and define which context will be chosen;
that seems fine to me.
