C++ explicitly referes to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 . You may call it C89, I
will to consistently call it C90. The point remains that C++ does not
refer to any newer version of the C standard.

No. The wording in C90 standard is actually important. It simply leaves
this question not-standarized and the C++ standard does not add anything
in this respect. However, if (or rather when) C++ is updated to refer to
the newer version of the C standard, it will have to be considered.
