Isn't that already a contradiction to POSIX?  SUSv3 states that there should
not be any output at all:

| -c  
|     Check that the single input file is ordered as specified by
|     the arguments and the collating sequence of the current locale.
|     No output shall be produced; only the exit code shall be affected.
