Was a gradfather an acceptable witness for the birth of a grandson in Galitzia in 1875? #austria-czech

Dear Genners
 
I have found a close relative living in the same house, with the same surname who appears as witness in the birth act of a boy (by the way my grandfather)
 
I think he was his grandfather, however I cannot yet prove the relation.
 
Was such a  close relative accepted by the Austrian authorities as a witness of the birth?
 
Or maybe this was not a limitation?
 
Thanks for your comments.
 
PS: If you consider your comments to be of relevance to me only, please email me but not the list.
