Note that boost::array is not a (standard) conforming container anyway!

Array, by design, has a fixed number of elements. The container
concept requires the ability to add and remove elements.

Likewise, the pointer and const_pointer requirements are part of
allocator support. As boost::array does not support allocators, it
should not need these elements and any tests requiring them is flawed.
