184.108.40.206 [allocator.members]/2 says:
-2- Returns: A pointer to the initial element of an array of storage of size n * sizeof(T), aligned appropriately for objects of type T.
As in LWG 3038, we should not return too little storage for n objects of size sizeof(T), e.g. when n is SIZE_MAX / 2 and T is short.

[2019 Cologne Wednesday night]
Status to Ready; will open additional issue to reconcile this and 3038
This wording is relative to N4800.
Change 220.127.116.11 [allocator.members] as indicated:
[[nodiscard]] T* allocate(size_t n);
[…]-4- Throws: bad_alloc if the storage cannot be obtained.
