This is resolution of GB-090 (126.96.36.199 [meta.unary.prop] Unnecessary precondition for is_aggregate).
The precondition for is_aggregate is "remove_all_extents_t<T> shall be a complete type or cv void." This means that is_aggregate_v<Incomplete> is undefined, but an array is always an aggregate, we don't need a complete element type to know that.
Historically the is_aggregate was introduced by LWG 2911 as part of the resolution of the NB comments. The comment proposed to introduce this trait with requirement "remove_all_extents_t<T> shall be a complete type, an array type, or (possibly cv-qualified) void.", that is close to resolution proposed in this issue. According to notes this was simplified during review, after realizing that remove_all_extents_t<T> is never an array type.
