1. Your other examples won't compile (e.g. your benchmark.cpp), as you
have found out, with these changes, for the obvious reason(s) - e.g.
requiring allocator to provide construct/destroy (which a conforming
allocator does not have to do in C++11 and above).

2. You should be rebinding to value_type to construct() the value type
object (in the same way to you rebind to node type to allocate() node
type object). Likewise for destroy().

3. Surely:

    p1 = node<U, Allocator<U> >::allocate(node<U, Allocator<U>
>::allocator_type(x, y), p, q)

   can become simpler still. i.e. the target is still something as clean as:

    p1 = allocate_shared<U>(Allocator(x, y), p, q);

4. No 'const_cast'-ing away 'const'. You need to use the allocators correctly.
