It's because a conforming C++11 custom allocator does not need to
provide certain members. it is designed to be used through
std::allocator_traits which will infer those members from what the
allocator does provide.

Yes. :-) boost::allocator_traits is a perfectly reasonable way to have
the same thing in C++03 friendly code.
