Assuming, at some point we figure out how to get p0443 executors and p1019 style execution policy types, which communicate executors to the algorithm, which allocator to use becomes a property query against the executor. The default executor and it's associated properties are a library implementation detail, but the way that the algorithms respond to the presence of those properties should be the same.
Similarly, the execution policy will ultimately need to be communicated to the basis functions of the backend as well, and I am planning on resurrecting my prototype of that change in the next week.
I'd like to be careful about making these sorts of changes until we have had a chance to have the next follow up coordination meeting that Alexey has proposed.
