I couldn't find a statement in the standard saying whether the allocator object held by a container is held as a copy of the constructor argument or whether a pointer of reference is maintained internal. There is an according statement for compare objects and how they are maintained by the associative containers, but I couldn't find anything regarding allocators.
Did I overlook it? Is it an open issue or known defect? Or is it deliberately left unspecified?
Not a defect. The LWG believes that the Standard is already clear. See 21.2 [container.requirements], paragraph 8.
