Storyboard with Quartz Composer view (QCView) cannot compile

Product:Developer Product Version:Xcode 9
Classification:Serious Reproducible:Always
I have a several years old Mac application with a simple Quartz Composer about animation view. When I wanted to recompile the app in Xcode 9.2 I got the following error:
Main.storyboard: error: The document "Main.storyboard" could not be opened. The operation couldn’t be completed. ( error -1.)

Since then I created a new sample app with just this one view, which is available here:
On the master branch there is a QCView and it does not compile, on the noquartz branch the only thing I've done is remove the empty QCView and now it does compile.

On both branches the view is shown correctly in Interface Builder.

Steps to Reproduce:
Compile master branch

Expected Results:
should compile.

Actual Results:
Compilation returns the error:

Needless to say, the console (system.log) does not show anything out of the ordinary.
