But not in this issue I think. GH-18969 is a minimal change that
*removes* UB for the standard sizes.

UB for the native type is a direct consequence of using _Bool.
Native types should be left as is because that's what array
libraries expect. The docs could need a change (in another issue).

Also, UB can only happen in a constructed example --- correctly
packed arrays don't have any incorrect values.

So I think any fear of UB here is not warranted.
