That may be because I didn't :O

In fact, I'd expect that some of the BDE allocators will eventually make 
it into the standard.

What I don't expect is to have stuff like inline_vector in the standard, 
because it's easy to replace (with a few elements lost) by vector + pool 
allocator + char[] buffer.
