For an rvalue pair pr, uses_allocator_construction_args is specified to forward std::move(pr).first and std::move(pr).second. This is correct for non-references and lvalue references, but wrong for rvalue refrences because the class member access produces an lvalue (see [expr.ref]/6). get produces an xvalue, which is what is desired here.

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4878.

  1. Edit [] as indicated:

    template<class T, class Alloc, class U, class V>
      constexpr auto uses_allocator_construction_args(const Alloc& alloc,
                                                      pair<U, V>&& pr) noexcept -> see below;


    -15- Effects: Equivalent to:

    return uses_allocator_construction_args<T>(alloc, piecewise_construct,
