Addresses: filesys.ts§ 2.1 [fs.conform.9945] specifes "No diagnostic is required" for races. That prescription is used by the standard for the core language; it is not appropriate in library specifications. LWG/SG-3 wishes this be changed to undefined behavior.
[Beman comments: The replacment wording is similar to that used by C++14 184.108.40.206]
Proposed resolution:Change the following paragraph from § 2.1 [fs.conform.9945]
Insert a new sub-section head before the modified paragraph:
The behavior of functions described in this Technical Specification may differ from their specification in the presence of file system races ([fs.def.race]). No diagnostic is required.
2.1 File system race behavior [fs.race.behavior]
