There's no basis in the specification, but in practice, on Linux at least, a process that runs as pid 1 outside of a container and that exits - whether normally or via abort() or anything else - will cause a kernel panic. So treating that case as UB is defensible, at least until musl is ported to an OS where pid 1 death is less dramatic. -- Laurent
