Absolutely. Sometimes it may be hard to fulfil, though, e.g. the address
supplied may be a result of macro expansion at the preprocessing stage and
depending on some options it may expand either to a constant or to
something else, e.g. a symbol. Making the instruction a part of the
expansion may be difficult or at least obscure. And a constant is a valid
address after all. ;-)
