Not an official answer in any way, but considering it's not explicitly
documented as supported and your test case also fails when replacing
`fusion::map` with `std::tuple` I would consider it just a fluke in the
past. On the other hand, the following code compiles correctly (albeit
with possibly a warning):

     typedef std::tuple<short,
                        std::array<int, 2>, // note std::array
                        std::string > test_t;

     test_t test{1, 2, {}, {"hello"}};

The same is not true for a `fusion::map`, and I think supporting that
case would be worth it.
