The static function ios_base::xalloc() could be called from multiple threads and is not covered by 220.127.116.11 [res.on.objects] and 18.104.22.168 [res.on.data.races]. Adding a thread-safety requirement should not impose a significant burden on implementations, as the function can be easily implemented with hopefully lock-free atomics.
Unanimous.Resolution: move tentatively ready. (Inform Bill about this issue.)
