No need for the sarcasm here. His suggestion really was not odd at all. As
for having such requirements as a part of required boost coding standards, I
don't think that's necessary as it should be handled on a library-by-library
basis (speak up during review if you have a strong opinion on it). For
specific, accepted libraries for which you feel the need for such behavior,
you should talk to the library maintainer. Having control over allocators is
a very reasonable request.
