We did that with std::experimental::any in Bristol, and it's now
obvious that was a mistake. (Are we getting an NB comment on that and
a wording change to fix it? :) Hopefully that example will help us
reject any future "let's just add an allocator to this" changes that
aren't driven by a well-thought-out argument and an implementation.
