How can I link from a composite state's inner state to the top-level final state?

I would like to express execution halting in a state diagram by linking one of the sub-states of a composite state to the "top-level" final state.

But I have no specific syntax to refer to this final state: when using the " --> [*]" syntax from an inner state, I get a link to the composite "local" final state (as could be expected).

So my questions are:

  1. Is this valid UML?
  2. Is there a way I can express such a transition in plantuml syntax?

Regards,

Olivier.
