Question Altitude Restrictions?

May I pose a question to you all as to altitude restrictions on SIDS and STARS?

If say you are flying flying a STAR and the controller clears you down to, say FL180, level by ABCDE.

You look at the plate and it says "thou shalt be at ABCDE AT FL180". Easy so far.

If then ATC clear you down to FL140, before you have reached ABCDE, are you still then expected to meet with the AT FL180 AT ABCDE restriction and then continue descent to FL140?

I think not, but some of the guys I fly with seem to think so, others aren't sure. Also vice versa with a SID and climb clearances.

What are your opinions of this. I am especially interested to know what our TC controllers think/know!?

Thanks in advance.
