In lack of a proper explanation, I will assume that your argument is
that the array member lifetime has ended and you're re-using its storage
to store an object of a different type.

Is that what you meant?

Assuming this is true (which I'm not entirely sure of, the fact that it
is a subobject might be a problem), there still is 3.8/7 to consider,
which does not allow you to re-use the storage for any other type if
there is any reference to the original object.

I don't see how the copy constructor of the class could avoid referring
to the original object.
