Mp3 decoding, in theory, always the same?

Obviously there are differences in mp3 encoders - the algorithms and settings used to produce a file. But for a given mp3 file, should it decode to exactly one WAV file, or can there also be differences in the decoding?

Even in "compliant" decoders, there is different rounding at the least significant bit level, and sometimes dither.
