Certainly, which is probably why it is undefined behavior in glsl.
My guess is the d3d10 drivers will check dependency chains and see if the
result may be needed later for derivatives, and if it is only kill whole quads
immediately or something like that. Whereas in GL it would be the
responsibility of the shader to do the actual kill only when the pixels aren't
needed any longer for calculating derivatives (though I suppose that means it
potentially wouldn't early discard whole quads neither).
