Are intrinsics exempt from the general rules of the standard?  The 
question I raised here is not about one particular implementation, it is 
about if the standard is consistent in what rules should follow.  I think 
there hasn't been any convincing argument that my view is false.  That is, 
an allocatable variable has to be associated with both FROM and TO at some 
point during the execution of the MOVE_ALLOC.  Is this allowed by rules in
