No. "Specializations shall be provided for each fundamental type, both
floating point and integer, including bool." "Non-fundamental standard
types, such as complex<T> (26.2.2), shall not have specializations."

Since numeric_limits is not specialized for arrays, the primary template is
used, which is ill-formed.
