One more tidbit: ISO/IEC 9899:1990 3.14

3.14 object: A region of data storage in the execution environment,
the contents of which can represent values. Except for
bit-fields, objects are composed of contiguous sequences of one or
more bytes, the number, order and encoding of which are either
explicitely specified or implementation-defined.

This would specifically prohibit separating any part of a structure
from the rest.
