P1902R1 "Missing feature-test macros 2017-2019", accepted in Belfast, said:

[P0415R1] (Constexpr for std::complex): this paper proposes to introduce the macro __cpp_lib_constexpr_complex. That is, introducing a new macro for this header.

However, __cpp_lib_constexpr_complex wasn't mentioned in the Wording section, and doesn't appear in the latest WP N4842.

P0415R1 was accepted in Albuquerque (November 2017), and the paper itself said "For the purposes of SG10, we recommend the feature-testing macro name __cpp_lib_constexpr_complex.", so this has been accepted and then overlooked by WG21 twice.
