Of course.
That is exactly the point.
How you draw the line, determines which side it will fall, and it is right 
in the middle, so many otherwise reasonable definitions will differ on 
that group of chips, since it IS in between an 8 bit and 16 bit.
Either an 8 bit that has been expanded to SOME 16 bit capabilities, or a 
16 bit that has been cut down into an 8 bit.
