Vague recollections are not worth much to me. This is at
http://wiki.edg.com/bin/view/Wg21belfast/LWGThursdayAfternoon

"Discussion about inconsistency of __cpp_lib_array_constexpr vs
__cpp_lib_constexpr_*header*
Consistency is nice, but not necessary. No consensus to change. "

Granted, those notes aren't worth much to me either. :) They do seem
to indicate that LWG discussed this
very matter. I still don't see a very convincing reason to deviate
from the policy, considering Richard's correct
remark that the existing feature-testing macro can continue to ship.
