Yup, we sure do. How about adding an assert() to that effect?

  #define apreq_attr_to_type(T,A,P) ( assert(P != NULL), \
                                     (T*) ((char*)(P)-offsetof(T,A)) )

I'm not sure that is a good idea, though, because this macro is 
part of our public API, and this would add an <assert.h> dependence
to it.  Any opinion?
