My suggestion would be to pass alignof(type) into the allocator via macro. Then the allocator could at least assert it's providing good enough alignment if not provide the correct alignment.

I believe 16-byte alignment is special because it's glibc's malloc's default. So "normal" code shouldn't really be expecting anything better than 16-byte alignment. Code with higher alignment requirements will have to use APIs like the one proposed in #18835.
