Ok, I think I got the point. I think the situation is even
worse than I initially was thinking of:

So even in the following case where T is an POD-object type:

struct U { T t; };

and when sizeof(T) == sizeof(U)

I am allowed to:

T t;
U u1;
U u2;


and rely on u1 == u2, but may not rely on:
t == u1 or t == u2, because there are no
guarantees about value representation guarantees
between U and T.
